45286. 


14 

4-45286 is Mark Lindsay's new single. 
And Mac Davis' latest song. 

4-45286 is a song called "Problem Child." 
^ ^ It's all about a young girl on the streets. 

And it follows Mark Lindsay's succession 
of four previous singles on the charts. 

You'll soon discover that 4-45286 is an 
easy number to remember. And a 
hard song to forget.

1970: An Analysis 


The business of doing business in 
the recording industry in 1970 more 
or less reflected the general state of 
the economy. For the first half of the 
/ear, however, the industry seemed 
comfortably insulated from the gen- 
eral downturn, validating the theory 
that recordings, especially to the 
young, possess “necessity” status. 
While an increase of 9% in industry 
sales — as estimated by the RIAA — 
seems to give validity to this concept, 
the tight-money situation caught up 
with the business, and is expected to 
make the bottom-line showings of a 
lot of companies less than rosy. It 
would seem, however, that the industry 
did not stint on attempts — some im- 
mensely successful — to uncover, pro- 
mote and come through with acts that 
look like long-range finds, such as The 
Jackson Five, Elton John, Melanie, 
James Taylor, Rare Earth and the Car- 
penters. And if the industry needed a 
clue to its potential, it could turn to 
the amazing 1 million plus sales of a 
3-LP soundtrack production of “Wood- 
stock.” The economic question as it 
relates to the music business over the 
next 12 months is, again, reflective 
of the economy as a whole. Can the 
industry afford to seek out and pro- 
mote with vigor its talent finds if the 
economy fails to expand? 

1970 was also a year of soul-search- 
ing for the business. Two of its bright- 
est stars, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Jop- 
lin, were among the casualties of drug 
abuse. Even before their deaths, the 


Vice President of the United States 
and a Commissioner of the FCC viewed 
rock as a major source of promoting 
drug abuse and general permissive- 
ness. Generally, the industry answered 
back in a strong voice that rock music, 
oft times a music of social reflection, 
mirrored the culture of Its time, more 
recently even propagandizing against 
the use of hard drugs. The industry 
also found a friend in one FCC Com- 
missioner, Nicholas Johnson, who has 
made broad attacks against Govern- 
mental censorship of the arts. 

1970 was the year in which a new 
home entertainment medium began to 
pick up steam. This is the world of the 
video recording configurations. As 
tooling up for hardware was taking 
place for late 1971 introduction, soft- 
ware deals, mainly in the area of fea- 
ture films, were being firmed. While 
there’s general agreement that the 
video cartridge is a revolutionary step 
forward in home entertainment, some 
wonder If all the present publicity on 
the medium — still years away from 
mass use — will cut into recording 
sales, especially those of tape cart- 
ridges. Others claimed that current 
musical libraries in this area might 
prove dated by the time they reached 
the public. 

Coping with economic conditions, 
fending off critical attacks on its music 
and the development of the visual cart- 
ridge are vital facts-of-life in the im- 
mediate future of the recording busi- 
ness.

Fox Agency Tape Piracy Action 
Against 20 Outlets In Florida 


Podolor: Top 40 Radio Breathii g 
New Life Into The Singles Market 


“In certain areas bootleggers have 
opened stores dealing exclusively in 
bootleg products. One of the defen- 
dants in the Tampa action, Triangle 
Tape City, opened such a store in St. 
Petersburg right next to a music and 
record store in business for over 18 
years, Lefter’s Music Company. The 
owners of the legitimate store were 
being severely hurt, and no doubt 
would have suffered great loss of 
sales, especially during the Christmas 
season, if we had not moved.” 

“There is no question but that 
thousands of bootleg cartridges are 
being sold each week, but we are 
beginning to make significant inroads 
in the traffic. As a result of our 
actions, retailers are afraid to handle 
it. They are a prime target in our 
campaign.” 

“While we can’t get to everybody 
at once, in due time all retailers 
caught with the merchandise in their 
stores will be sued.” 

Berman would not say where Fox 
would strike next, but he did indicate 
that his attorneys were intensively

HOLLYWOOD — “Top 40 radio sta- 
tions, in an attempt to counteract the 
growing influence of FM under- 
grounders, have put a new breath of 
life into the once-dying singles mar- 
ket,” according to indie producer 
Richard Podolor. Podolor, who’s just 
earned his 19th RIAA gold disk in 
the last 18 months. He points to the 
heated competition between many 
major market Top 40’s to be the first 
to predict and break a single out of a 
new album as an important boost to 
flagging singles sales. 

“When the AM’ers first realized 
they were losing their older teen au- 
dience to FM, they tried to fight back 
with an ‘album cut’ policy, but all 
that did was dilute their program- 
ming,” says Podolor. “Now, they’ve 
learned to apply their ‘tight playlist’ 
concept to albums, concentrating on 
one, or maybe two cuts from a given 
album, and creating a market for the 
eventual single. By keeping the unfa- 
miliar music to a minimum, they are 
able to satisfy the growing taste of 
their young audience, without aliena- 


Revive Verve & Forecast Labels; 
3-Part Structure Under Mansfield 


NEW YORK — Twenty-seven music 
publisher principals of the Harry 
Fox Agency instituted an action on 
Dec. 11 against 20 record and tape 
retailers and wholesalers throughout 
Florida for tape piracy. 

The defendants are charged with 
the illegal sale of pirated 8-track car- 
tridges bearing the label “Stereo 8.” 

Late on Dec. 11 United States Dis- 
trict Judge Ben Krentzman directed 
all of the defendants to show cause 
in the United States District Court, 
last Fri. (18), why they should not be 
enjoined from the sale of such cart- 
ridges. Pending a hearing. Judge 
Krentzman restrained the defendants 
from the further sale of the product. 

Largest Venture 

In disclosing the action Berman 
said: “The bootleg tapes which are 
the target of our Florida campaign 
are the same unmarked ‘Stereo 8’ pro- 
duct which was the subject of our 
successful action against retailers 
and distributors in the United States 
District Court in Connecticut in 
November. The ‘Stereo 8’ operation is 
unquestionably the largest and most 
sophisticated bootleg venture in the 
United States, with a highly clandes- 
tine distribution system. These ras- 
cals now have a printed catalog 
which they make available to re- 
tailers. Recordings by every artist 
and group of any consequence are 
available. In fact, the catalog even 
has a Christmas supplement. Current- 
Iv there are over 320 different 8 track 
cartridges available.” 

“When we instituted our action in 
November, one of the track papers 
reproduced the label, with a request 
that anyone having information con- 
cerning the operation communicate 
with our attorneys, Abeles and 
Clark. As a result they have been 
inundated with reports from respon- 
sible dealers all over the country who 
are being hurt by this operation. But 
the bootleggers promptly adopted a 
new label to obstruct our identifica- 
tion.” 

Half Bogus Sales 

Berman said his investigation 
shows that in some areas of the 
country sale of the Stereo 8 product 
is accounting for at least one-half of 
all 8-track cartridge sales. “Frequent- 
ly the bootleg cartridges are avail- 
able before the legitimate recordings 
are available. For example, we pur- 
chased the Bob Dylan “New Morn- 
ing” album in a bootleg cartridge in 
Tampa, although the Columbia car- 
tridge was not yet available.” 


FRONT COVER: 



Perry Como once again sends 
Christmas Greetings to the music 
world on the cover of Cash Box. The 
RCA songster thus revives a tradi- 
tion in which he appeared for 12 
straight years on the year-end cover 
issue of Cash Box. The artist is 
presently giving new credence to the 
fact that the so-called “good music” 
format is one that always survives 
changing sounds on recordings. He’s 
doing it with a ballad called “It’s 
Impossible,” a bullet disking in the 
number 27 slot on this week’s Top

HOLLYWOOD — The Verve and

Music Div. Aids 

NEW YORK — With an in-the-black 
showing for its music divisions, in- 
cluding MGM Records and Big 3 Mu- 
sic, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer showed a 
consolidated net income of $1,573,000 
in the fiscal year ended Aug. 31, ac- 
cording to James Aubrey, president. 

This is a major financial comeback 
for the company, which in the previ- 
ous fiscal period declared a loss of 
$35,366,000. As for the music divi- 
sions, a deficit of $11,985,000 was 
turned into a $55,000 profit in the 
new period. Aubrey became president 
of MGM in Oct., 1969. He later named 
Mike Curb to run the company’s mu- 
sic division. For the music division, 
gross volume for the year came to 
$20,188,000. For the fourth quarter, 
volume reached $6,955,000, with a net 
income of $445,000, as compared to a 
loss in the same quarter last year of 
$6,386,000. Curb attributes music di- 
vision profits this year to two Micha- 
el Parks chart LP’s, a million selling 
single by Eric Burden, a Bobby 
Bloom smash, three top C&W 
smashes with Hank Williams Jr., Mel 
Tillis and Billy Walker, strong sales 
on the “Strawberry Statement” al- 
bum and the recent Eric Burdon LP. 
Also to music publishing which had 
an Elvis Presley hit (“You Don’t 
Have to Say You Love Me”), a Hot 
Legs charter (“Neanderthal Man”) 
and the Crow’s “King of Rock and 
Roll” on Amaret, all in the last quar- 
ter. 

Aubrey also stated that the compa- 
ny’s bank indebtedness was reduced 
by $52,091,000, or 63%. He claimed 
that a profit would be realized for 
the first fiscal period of the new 


the initial release. Verve /Forecast 
will consist of new free-form experi- 
mental pop. Verve /Forecast was the 
label that originally discovered such 
talent as Laura Nyro, Tim Hardin, 
The Mothers of Invention, Blues Pro- 
ject, Richie Havens, Ian & Sylvia, 
etc. 

“The Verve catalog is the largest 
jazz catalog in music,” Curb said, 
“and is probably the most important 
historically.” “We are going to re- 
lease carefully structured jazz pack- 
ages that should prove to be invalu- 
able to the collector and new buyer 
alike. It is our goal to continue and 
enhance the reputation of Verve and 
Veiwe/ Forecast which has always 
been a true purveyor of the avant- 
garde in the recording world.” 


MGM 70 Profits 

year, ending in Nov. 

Fiscal 1970 involved an extraordi- 
nary gain of $9,801,000 from the sale 
of three theatres in South Africa, one 
theatre in Australia and the sale of 
props, wardrobe and camera dept, of 
the Culver City Studio. Excluding 
this, the operating loss for fiscal 1970 
came to $8,228,000. TV helped the 
company by showing a net income of 
$1,715,000, an increase from $8000 in 
fiscal 1969. Gross income for the 
period came to $170,685,000, com- 
pared with $192,324,000. 

For the fourth quarter, a loss of 
$3,352,000 from operates was re- 
ported. This amount increased to $3,- 
904,000 by an extraordinary charge 
of $552,000 for relocation of the 
companys headquarters, which was 
offset by sale of a French office 
building. Previous fourth quarter loss 
came to $20,954,000. 


Col Caster 
On 'Lolita' 

NEW YORK — Columbia Records 
will release the cast of “Lolita,” the 
musical based on Vladimir Nabokov’s 
best-seller. Show, in which CBS is a 
six-figure investor, is set to open on 
Broadway on March 30. It has a 
score by Alan Jay Lemer and John 
Barry. There is presently a nation- 
wide search for a performer to play 
the title role. Columbia has already 
marketed four original cast albums 
this season, including “The 
Rothchilds,” “Two By Two,” “Bob & 
Ray — The Two & Only,” and “Paul 
Sills Storyteller Theatre.” 


ting their older audience.” The result 
: of this new trend, according to Podo- 
I lor, is that the singles buyer is no 
longer abruptly becoming an album 
buyer, but instead will continue to 
support the singles market for a long 
period. 

Underground Singles 
“Last year, record companies had 
to fight to get singles exposure for 
their album acts,” Podolor asserts. 
“Although many undergo und groups 
did have hit records (including such 
Podolor-produced acts as Three Dog 
Night, Iron Butterfly, Steppenwolf 
and Blues Image), they were the re- 
sult of strong promotion. Now, radio

Bloodrock Single 
Alive On AM Outlets 

HOLLYWOOD — An added wrinkle 
in record promoting initiated by Cap- 
itol Records this past week involved 
promo men contacting local liquor 
boards and national safety councils 
to tie in with indie radio outlets. 
Subject is a cut from the Bloodrock 2 
LP released as an abbreviated single 
under the title “D.O.A.” The anti- 
drinking-when-driving message is 
termed by Capitol’s national singles 
promotion manager Evan Reynolds 
as a “soft sell but hardly subliminal 
crusade against intoxication during 
the holiday season.” 

Record, according to Reynolds, was 
first aired by underground stations 
but has crossed over onto several 
powerhouse outlets as KLIF (Dal- 
las), KYA (San Francisco) and 
WFUN (Miami). It’s drawing imme- 
diate phone response whenever it’s 
aired. “Several radio stations had ex- 
pressed interest in playing it after 
the holidays because they felt it 
might be a little morbid for this time 
of year. But in reality it has come to 
our attention that some stations are 
programming it for that very reason. 
They feel it is a public service state- 
ment,” says Reynolds. 

“D.O.A.” (Dead on Arrival) is ! 
termed a “heavy but not hard rock | 
record” by Reynolds who feels it is i 
conceivable that it could be played on j 
some MOR outlets also. “It is ■ 
reaching a much larger demographic j 
audience than we first believed it 
could.” Side hit the Cash Box top 100 I 
this week at #94. Bloodrock 2 album 
is bulleted at #87.

Sir Edward Gives 
Moody Blues 3 
More Gold IP’s 

NEW YORK — Sir Edward Lewis, 
chairman of the Decca Record Com- 
pany of England Ltd., and London 
Records Inc., helped The Moody 
Blues bring their latest U. S. tour to 
a rewarding finale last week, as he 
presented the group with three gold 
albums. 

The ceremony took place at a gala 
soiree and cocktail reception hosted 
by London Records last Tuesday (15) 
at the Friars Club, the night follow- 
ing the group’s two concert sellout at 
Carnegie Hall, closing their third 
lO-da-"^ tour of America of the year. 

Sir Edward was presented to the 
audience of more than 200 guests, 
representing press and radio as well 
as agency and record dealer figures, 
by Walt Maguire, head of London’s 
pop A&R division. Sir Edward 
presented each member of the five- 
man group with three gold LP’s for 
the albums, “In Search of the Lost 
Chord,” “To Our Children’s Chil- 
dren’s Children,” and “A Suestion of 
Balance”. First of these three is on 
the Moody’s former Deram label, 
while the latter two are on their own 
Threshold label, distributed by Lon- 
don. 

Earlier this year, the group also 
received gold disks for their Deram 
albums, “Threshold of a Dream” and 
“Days of Future Passed.” Thus, the 
Moody Blues have now scored with 
gold record awards for all five of 
their currently released albums. Be- 
yond this, all five of the awards have 
been won during the past three 
months, which is believed to be a 
record. 

According to plans now on the 
drawing board, the group is expected 
to return to the U. S. in April, fol- 
lowing completion of sessions for a 
new album which will get underway 
after the first of the year. 

Cap. Signs Albatross 

HOLLYWOOD — Capitol Records 
has announced the signing of the 
British group Albatross to an exclu- 
sive recording contract, according to 
Artie Mogull, executive producer and 
vice president, A&R division. 

Their debut album is scheduled to 
be released in early January, and the 
group is to make their first American 
tour in March. Albatross is managed 
by the Robert Stigwood Organization 
in London, New York, and Los Ange- 
les, 


on top product — new and recent re- 
cordings by the label’s best-selling 
artists: the Band, the Beatles, Glen 
Campbell, Grand Funk, Merle Hag- 
gard, the Lettermen and many oth- 
ers, along with leading Angel artists. 

Capitol will support this “Clear- 
ance Sale” in several ways, according 
to Rocco Catena, vice president of 
Merchandising. “We’ve started off by 
borrowing from the ‘January White 
Sale’ idea. We sent out an initial 
teaser mailing to all accounts of a 
printed hand towel, which will be fol- 
lowed in part by display kits featur- 
ing clotheslines, clothespins, and 
beach towels.” 

Capitol accounts will also receive 
an elaborate ad mat kit enclosing 
advertising “modules” for co-op use, 
sample layout sheets, check lists and 
order blanks. The label’s sales force 
has already begun an intensive ac- 
count coverage in preparation for the 
Dec. 26 launch date. 

Said Catena, “We hope by this ex- 
tensive concentration to achieve five 
particular aims: to direct consumer 
thinking from holiday purchasing to 
‘catalogue awareness,’ to stimulate 
store traffic by offering accounts an 
aggressive sales promotion, to mo- 
tivate the consumer to spend a good 
portion of his ‘gift dollars’ on Capi- 
tol and Angel product, to attract the 
new owner of playback equipment, 
and to assist the account in reducing 
the bulk of ‘left-over’ holiday stock.” 


Edwards: Chess Lahles i a 
For Renewed Flow Of ¥mim 


NEW YORK — With its A&R dept, 
set for full-scale operations, the 
Chess label operation of the GRT 
Record Group is ready to roll again 
with a steady flow of product. This is 
the word from Esmond Edwards, re- 
cently-appointed A&R vp, following 
an A&R meet in New York. New 
York-based execs and the label’s staff 
producers from Chicago planned al- 
bum and singles schedules through 
next April. 

The flow, coming from Chess, 
Checker, Cadet and Cadet Concept, 
will originate, Esmond said, largely 
from a roster of producer and artists 
in Chicago. “Our new policy,” he 
added, “will also enable us to obtain 
product from the best independent 
producers, who are a major source of 
new talent.” He noted that a coordi- 
nated release schedule would be 
backed by “solid” merchandising, 
promo and publicity campaigns. 

Attending the meet at the New 
York Hilton were Edwards, Len 
Levy, head of the GRT Record 
Group, Amie Orleans, vice president 
of marketing for Chess; Joe Gowan, 
vice president of administration for 
the GRT group. Art Milhman, con- 
troller; Ralph Bass, producer for 
Chess in Chicago; and staff producers 
Gene Barge, Charles Stepney, Sonny 
Thompson and Cash McCall. 

Planned as the first of regular 
meetings with the Chicago A&R 
staff, the conclave proved productive.

‘Silhouettes In Courage’ Profiles 
Black Role In History On 8 LP’s 


Project Cost 
At $300,000 


$300,000 album 
put the blacks’ 


NEW YORK — A 
project designed to 
role in history, particularly Ameri- 
can, into proper perspective has been 
marketed by Silhouettes In Courage, 
Inc. 

The production, conceived by com- 
poser-producer Charles Jones, pres- 
ident of SIC, is a series of four al- 
bums, each containing two LP’s. 
Jones and co-producer Warren C. 
Slaten called upon the services of 
more than 1500 actors, writers, musi- 
cians and historians to undertake the 
project, which required more than 28,- 
000 hours of technical production. 
These included historians Prof. 
William Loren Katz and Dr. Benja- 
min Quarles and performers Ossie Da- 
vis, Brock Peters, Frederick O’Neal 
and Ruby Dee. 

Jones, who said the RCA and 
Columbia labels gave aid in the 
preparation of the fourth volume, 
said that sales would be handled 
through mail-order and regular rec- 
ord distribution channels. The com- 
plete set lists at $45, while individual 
volumes sell at $11.95. Jones expects 
a particular strong response from ed- 
ucational institutions. As noted at a 
reception at Mastertone Sound Studi- 
os in New York, where most of the 
recording took place, the series rep- 
resents a “needed corrective in Amer- 
ican history courses,” in the belief 
that the black man’s role in building 
America has generally gone unrecog- 
nized in history texts.

SIC, located at 22 East 40th St. in 
New York, has also produced several 
other recording projects. These in- 
clude “P.S. 186,” 15% of the income 
from which will be donated to the 
Parents Teachers Association and a 
student bus service in Atlanta; and 
an LP of serious music works by 
black composers Howard Swanson 
and Jones himself, with Benjamin 
Steinberg conducting the Budapest 
Philharmonic Orchestra. Fifteen per- 
cent of the latter LP profits will be 
contributed to the Symphony of the

Jones, who noted that he had bor- 
rowed the $300,000 to make the 
series, plans other endeavors, some in 
the area of TV.

years ago resulted in hits with “The 
In Crowd” and “Hand On Sloopy.” 
Emphasis will be placed on four key 
Chess artists who are: Chuck Berry, 
Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters and How-

other important artists in the future. 

Edwards announced at the meet 
that Chess has acquired “Leave Me 
Your Love” by Lee Eldred, a hot 
master from Olgreg Productions. 

Orleans reported heavy sales activ-

Merc ‘Massive’ 
Campaign Bows 
Sir Lord Baltimore 

NEW YORK — Mercury Records has 
signed Sir Lord Baltimore, a newly 
created hard-rock trio personally 
managed by Dee Anthony of Band- 
ana Enterprises and booked by Frank 
Barcelona of Premier Talent, ac- 
cording to Charles Fach, Mercury 
vice president. 

“The acquisition of Sir Lord Balti- 
more represents one of the most am- 
bitious programs Mercury has ever 
undertaken with a contemporary 
act,” stated Fach. “When you are 
working with people like Dee Antho- 
ny and Frank Barcelona, you are ob- 
viously talking about a rock group 
with far more than ordinary poten- 
tial. This is clearly one of our label’s 
biggest ventures. 

Mercury so eager for the product, 
Fach said that its placed Sir Lord 
Baltimore’s first album, “Kingdom 
Come,” into “super-rush-release,” to 
be ready in early Jan. A ‘massive’ 
promo, publicity and ad campaign is 
planned. 

Anthony, one of the most success- 
ful managers in the rock field — his 
firm handles Joe Cocker, Traflic, 
Free, Humble Pie, and Emerson- 
Lake-Palmer, among others — has, for 
the first time, become involved with 
an unknown act. 

Barcelona has planned an extensive 
American tour for the group. His 
company books Grank Funk Rail- 
road, Led Zeppelin, and the Who. 

The trio — Lou Dambra, lead gui- 
tar; Gary Justin, bass; and John Gar- 
ner, drums and lead vocals — all from 
the New York area, came to Antho- 
ny’s attention when an engineer at 
Vantone Studios in New Jersey 
played him a demonstration tape. A 
personal audition was quickly ar- 
ranged and the contracts signed. 

Then, Anthony sent Sir Lord Balti- 
more to the late Jimi Hendrix’s Elec- 
tric Lady Studio where, with co- 
producers Eddie Kramer and Mike 
Appel, they spent 250 hours cutting 
their initial LP. Appel and Jim Crete- 
cos wrote most of the lyrics, while 
Dambra, with the help of the group, 
penned the music. 

A stage act for a tour to start in 
Feb. will take the band to every ma- 
jor city in the United States. All in 
all, Dambra, .Tustin, and Gamer put 
in some 800 hours of afternoon re- 
hearsals at the Capitol Theater in 
Port Chester, New York. 

During this time, Irwin Steinberg, 
president of Mercury Records, made 
several trips to Port Chester to see 
the trio in person. Desmond Strobel, 
the label’s art director, accompanied 
him to formulate cover art, pictures, 
and posters for an etfective visual 
campaign.

The Reiord Industry Year In Review— 1970 


JANUARY 

The new decade begins with con- 
cern over the state of the economy 
and its impact on the music business. 
A Cash Box editorial, “The Music 
Business Economy is Strong,” noted 
the boom in the sale of recordings, 
and indicated that youngsters viewed 
the purchase of records as “very 
much a necessity” rather than a lux- 
ury . . . CBS Broadcasting’s per-use 
issue in the use of copyrights initi- 
ates legal hassle between the station 
and BMI. . . . Liberty/UA enters na- 
tional rack scene via Musical Isle of 
America. . . . Tom Jones and Engel- 
bert Humperdinck sign $6 million, six 
year renewal deal with British Decca. 

. . . Bell Records acquires 5th Dimen- 
sion and Johnny Rivers’ Soul City 
Productions, production-label outlet 
for group. . . . Lawrence Welk buys 
T. B. Harms Music, publisher of 
songs by Rodgers & Hart, Cole Por- 
ter, Jerome Kem, others. . . . Cash 
Box editorial, “Records & Radio: 
What About the Art of Communica- 
ting?,” calls for areas of greater di- 
alog between the two industries. . . . 
In another editorial, “Rock & 
Drugs,” a conclusion is drawn that 
“. . . rock as art is merely reflecting a 
social condition for which rock is 
often a convenient, simplistic scape- 
goat.” . . . Sam Goody, Inc. buys 
Bruno disk wing, to handle RCA line. 
Firm is called Brun Int’l. . . . Transi- 
tion noted in distribution area, with 
indie distribs as the industry has 
known them giving way to tie-ins

Stereodyne To Redirect Energy 
Toward ‘Upper End’ Of Product 


TROY, MICH. — Stereodyne will be 
placing a greater emphasis on quality 
and the higher priced portion of its 
product line in the coming year. Ac- 
cording to Jules Sack, executive vp 
and general manager for the firm, the 
energies will be thrust into raising 
the standard of quality not only in 
its manufacturing of cartridges and 
cassette, but also in the company’s 
marketing and custom duplication op- 
erations. 

“We feel that the time has come 
for those of us remaining in this 
business, after a long, rather hard 
year, to reevaluate our position with 
respect to objectives, consumer re- 

AFTRA To Negotiate 
On Video Cassettes 

NEW YORK — AFTRA is preparing 
to discuss and negotiate agreements 
covering video cassettes. Following 
several conferences in New York last 
week, with national and regional ex- 
ecutives and officers of the 22,000 
member television, radio and rec- 
ording union, national president Bill 
Baldwin and executive secretary Bud 
Wolff announced AFTRA has: 

— Reconstituted its “New Electron- 
ics Devices Committee” as a wages 
and working conditions committee 
consisting of 27 members with in- 
structions to prepare specific propos- 
als for the national board “as soon as 
possible”; 

— Established liaison with the 
Screen Actors Guild, for developing 
“common objectives” when SAG be- 
gins negotiating its film contracts 
next spring; 

— Notified industry representatives 
of its intent to seek early negotia- 
tions; 

— Established as its primary objec- 
tives, a) protection of the performer, 
and, b) payment in perpeutity for 
cassette use. Payment in perpetuity is 
considered by Baldwin, Wolff and 
other top officers and executives to 
be the primary target of any and all 
AFTRA cassette negotiations; 

— Informed AFTRA members and 
AFTRA franchised agents that 
AFTRA’s current contracts prohibit 
reproduction or showing of any per- 
formances on cassettes or for any 
use “other than on free television as 
we know it” without the union’s per- 
mission. 


quirements and the general conomic 
climate,” he stated. 

“It is quite apparent to us that the 
consumer has become much more so- 
phisticated in his buying. He knows 
more about the products and will no 
longer accept those of inferior quali- 
ty just because the price is very 
low.” 

He noted that “too often, manufac- 
turers have stressed economy over 
performance & quality. The results 
have been a somewhat negative atti- 
tude on the part of the consumer and 
a definite slowing of both concept 
and related products.” 

As an example, he pointed to the 
high failure rate of cassettes sold as 
the major reason for the failure to 
realize projected growths in the cas- 
sette area. “How many failures,” he 
asked, “will a consumer tolerate be- 
fore he begins to question not only 
the product but also the integrity of 
his dealer?” 

Sack continued, “we are not going 
to participate in a price war with our 
competitors. We challenged the in- 
dustry with the Dynapak, now we 
challenge the market for blank tape 
cartridges.” The impact of this, ac- 
cording to Sack, was shown princi- 
pally by the growth in professional 
use of this medium as a source of 
continued education. “Both the medi- 
cal and legal professions are expand- 
ing their utilization of tape car- 
tridges. Whereas previously, a doctor 
or lawyer has not had sufficient time 
to read the volumes of up-to-date 
materials, he will now be able to 
listen to the material available to 
him on a tape cartridge in his car, 
home or office at his convenience. 
Also, more students are using car- 
tridges, cassettes and related tape 
products as an aide in their studies.” 
The customer of today who wants 
quality and is asking to pay for it is 
starting to steer clear of low-cost 
products, Sack commented, because 
he has been caught too often in the 
past with a lot of poor performance 
tape. “Our products have always been 
targeted to the medium to high- 
priced range. Now, more than before, 
we are going to offer what the con- 
sumer wants — quality.” 

He closed his comments with the 
challenge to “have the same sharp 
competition toward producing quality 
that we have had in the pricing 
area.”

‘Superstar’ Libretto 
Available At Decca 

NEW YORK — Decca’s best selling 
“Jesus Christ/Superstar” album pack- 
age is including a post card redemp- 
J tion coupon to make available a li- 
j bretto for the rock-opera work. Ac- 
i cording to Joel Schneider, pre- 
I recorded tape product manager with 
MCA, “the enclusure of the post card 
was, to our mind, an essential service 
to our tape consumers due to the 
nature of the work and the impor- 
tance of its lyrics.” Thus far, some 
75% of the purchasers have redeemed 
their cards. 

The card entitles purchasers to ob- 
j tain a free libretto from MCA, Dec- 
j ca’s parent firm. 

Thus far released on cassette and 
j 8-track in a double pack, “Superstar” 
has neared the 100,000 unit sales 
mark, Schneider added. The RIAA 
last week certified sales in excess of 
$1,000,000 for the recording.

made available in January on open

hard. Now they're swinging just as hard as they sing. 
Their new single LOVE IS PLENTIFUL is more than

WTAE— Pittsburgh 
Moving Up Naturally 


During the past several years, FM 
has certainly emerged as a very im- 
portant force. However, in certain 
markets it has made a less noticeable 
dent than in others. One of the fac- 
tors is, of course, that of terrain. In 
Pittsburgh, for example, a surroun- 
ding belt of mountains is something 
of an obstacle for FM signals. Conse- 
quently, AM radio is still well and 
very much alive in the Steel City. 

Perhaps the most dramatic upward 
surge in the Pittsburgh market of 
late has been the rise of WTAE, a 
5,000 watter. “Three years ago, our 
format could be described as back- 
ground music,” says Bernie Arm- 
strong, Jr., the program manag- | 
er. Now the WTAE sound is clearly j 
in the forefront, a successful amal- 
gam of regular MOR fare and Top 40 
items which escape the hard rock 
classification. 

“The lines between musical forms ! 
really seem to be disappearing,” notes | 


HOW SWEET IT IS— KLZ-'P’M, Den-

Armstrong. And this is reflected 
in the station’s playlist, which in- 
cludes a healthy selection of jazz and 
R&B, in addition to more popular 
disks. 

An already solid personality 
format was further strengthened re- 
cently with the addition to the staff 
of A1 “Jazzbeaux” Collins, longtime 
WNEW-New York jock and some- 
thing of legend in the field. As morn- 
ing man, “Jazzbeaux” has brought 
his unique sense of humor to bear on 
projects such as the Giant Peruvian

tion’s recent promotions. The seeds, 
when planted, grew into twenty foot 
high stalks, which, naturally, were 
reminders to Pittsburghers of the 
station. 

“Our approach to promotions,” 
says Armstrong “is to think of the 
entertainment value for the non- 
participant and not to do contests 
just for the sake of doing them.” 

On the Public Service front, WTAE 
is currently inaugurating a drug edu- 
cation program directed, not at 
young people, but at their parents. 
The idea is to bring the program to 
the people by means of talks and 
visual aids.

of the station’s emphasis on person- i

Special Pressing 
On RCA DJ Decks « 

TORONTO — One of the complaints 
of radio stations with record com- 
panies has been the problem of quali- ■ 
ty in broadcasting stereo singles. ^ 
RCA has experimented with one of | 
their recent Canadian releases, 
“Kagie,” by Buxton/Kastle, a Hamil- 
ton group. The A side is stereo while ; 
the B side is mono. This experiment 
of the Mark Smith production is the “ 
work of Jack Feeney, manager and i 
executive producer of RCA Sun-Bar 
Productions. q 

It’s not known at this time if other 
disks will be pressed in this matter. > '

Choice Programming 


Choice Protramming selections are singles which, 
the opinion of our reviewing staff, are deserving of 
special programmer consideration. 


THE ARCHIES (Kirshner 5009) 

Together We Two (2:35) (Don Kirshner, BMI — Barry, Kim) 

Carrying the sunshine sparkle of their biggest hits, the Archies bustle 
back into the running with a vibrant side that should take the act high into 
the sales picture once more. Very strong outing for top forty sales. Flip: 
“Everything’s Alright" (2:17) (Don Kirshner, BMI — Dante) 

THE KINKS (Reprise 0979) 

Apeman (3:55) (Noma, BMI — Davies) 

Opening like another “Lola,” the Kinks take a turn toward the Caribbean 
with this follow-up entry. Side is a satirical pop venture whose sound and 
lyrics should reap the benefits of AM and FM exposure to thrust it toward 
the charts. Flip: “Rats" (2:42) (Hill & Range, BMI — Davies) 

BREAD (Elektra 45711) 

Let Your Love Go (2:15) (Screen Gems/Columbia, BMI — Gates) 

The third single from Bread brings a new strength to the act’s vocal 
sound, rumpling a bit of the letter-perfect smoothness of their first two hits. 
The extra body and power should assure top forty receptions. Flip: “Too 
Much Love” (no credits) 

JOHNNIE TAYLOR (Stax 0085) 

Jody Got Your Girl & Gone (3:05) (Groovesville, BMI — Barker, Wilson, Davis) 
Having asserted himself with “I Am Somebody,” Johnnie Taylor turns on 
a slower smoulder with this powerhouse venture. “Jody” features an out- 
standing Taylor performance backed by the inimitable Memphis instrumental 
fuel to power a rocket ride up the blues and top forty charts. Flip: no info. 

BILLY JOE ROYAL (Columbia 45289) 

Tulsa (3:36) (Earl Barton, BMI — Thompson) 

Some two years ago, this song met with “objectionable” reactions: but 
the expressive freedom since enjoyed should point up the storyline giving 
Billy Joe Royal the biggest reception that “(Don’t Let the Sun Set on You 
in) Tulsa” has yet been able to amass. Powerful teen material. Flip: “Pick 
up the Pieces” (2:31) (Low-Sal, BMI — Nix, Gilmore) 

BOBBY BLOOM (MGM 14212) 

Make Me Happy (2:58) (Heiress, BMI — Bloom, Barry) 

Tossing off the calypso mantle of “Montego Bay” for this second MGM 
effort, Bobby Bloom comes up with another dance side, this one based on a 
blues framework. Rhythm track and Bloom’s performance should wrap up 
top forty sales. Flip: “This Thing I’ve Gotten Into” (????????) 

THE NEW YORK ROCK & ROLL ENSEMBLE (Columbia 45288) 

Beside You (2:58) (Elbmesne, BMI — Fulterman, Kamen) 

A beautiful song that grows more hypnotic with each successive listen 
gives the NY R&R Ensemble its most powerful shot at gaining singles promi- 
nence yet. Melodically a folk variation on a classical motif, the song should 
explode on AM & FM channels. Flip: no info. 

FRANK SINATRA (Reprise 0981) 

Bein’ Green (3:00) (Jorico, ASCAP — Raposo) 

Attractive material is turned into a glossy bit of brilliance by the unique 
Sinatra magic on this new single. The blend is just right to captivate adult 
audiences, and this could springboard the side for MOR and AM notice. 
Flip: no info. 

MASON & CASS (Dunhill 4266) 

Something to Make You Happy (2:15) (Coachhouse, BMI — Mason) 

On the surface of it, the matching up of Mama Cass and Dave Mason 
would seem to have progressive leanings, but their first single is a surpris- 
ingly teen oriented effort. Tying both appeals. Mason & Cass could cover 
AM & FM markets with this outing. Flip: “Next to You" (2:31) (Coach- 
house, BMI — Garo) 

NANCY SINATRA & FRANK SINATRA (Reprise 0980) 

Feelin’ Kinda Sunday (2:52) (Don C/B-n-B, BMI — Wakefield, Tucker, Tempo) 
Bright, cheery side with a simple arrangement and flavorful material 
tailors this outing for across the board pleasure. Topping off the sparkling 
opening, a tempo-change and touch of brass give the single a hook to 
captivate teens and adults alike. Flip: no info. 

HERMAN GRIFFIN & THE BOYS IN THE BAND (Spring 109) 

Music Gonna Save the World (3:05) (Greyhound/Doraflo, BMI — Feldman, 
Gottehrer) 

Voicing the sentiment of much recent material, the Boys in the Band 
return in a whole new manner. Team has scored with a novelty and make 
noise with a driving follow-up: now it’s a slow smoking dance track with the 
“Fever” feel. R&B winner with top forty potential. Flip: “Groovin’ with the 
Boys in the Band” (2:10) (Greyhound/Gaucho, BMI — Feldman, Shannan) 


(^Newcomer Picks 

TYRANNOSAURUS REX (Blue Thumb 7121) 

Ride a White Swan (2:14) (TRO-Essex, ASCAP — Botan) 

The source of what is known here as the Mungo Jerry sound. Tyranno- 
saurus Rex has established an inner circle of followers already via early 
album works. Now, with their first single in the U.S. (top ten in G.B.), the 
group could break into top forty as well as FM playlists. Flip: “Summertime 
Blues” (2:44) (Viva/Hill & Range/Elvis Presley, BMI — Cochran, Capehart) 



VIKKI CARR (Columbia 45296) 

I’ll Be Home (3:17) (January, BMI— 
Newman) One of the more popular 
Randy Newman compositions _ is 
turned into a splended easy listening 
package for Vikki Carr’s Columbia 
debut. Flip: no info. 

DEAN MARTIN (Reprise 0973) 
Georgia Sunshine (2:58) (Vector, 
BMI — Hubbard) Country material is 
turned pop once more by Dean Mar- 
tin via this spiced up easy listening 
side. Flip: “For the Good Times” 
(3:50) (Buckhom, BMI — Kristofer- 
son) Mellower, more attractive per- 
formance. 

FREDDY ROBINSON (Liberty 
56214) 

Carmalita (2:48) (Unart, BMI — 
Robinson) Following his “Black 
Fox” outing. Freddie Robinson eases 
into a mellow guitar side that should 
see good R&B receptions. Flip: 
“Stone Stallion” (3:50) (Special 
Agent, BMI — Higgins, Leena) 

BOOTS RANDOLPH (Monument 
1233) 

C. C. Rider (3:09) (Music City, AS- 
CAP — Arr: Justis) One of the finest 
commercial sides from Boots Randol- 
ph in a while, this updating of the 
blues standard features instrumental 
work that could open sales valves on 
teen and R&B fronts. Flip: “Take a 
Letter Maria” (2:22) (Stellar, BMI — 
Greaves) 

FUGI (Cadet 5677) 

I’d Rather Be a Blind Man (2:45) 
(Uptight, BMI — Jordan) Strong 
blues work from Fugi gives the 
group its most likely shot at break- 
ing into the national picture with 
R&B and likely top forty reception. 
Flip: “Save a Little” (3:33) (Up- 
tight, BMI — Hawkins, Veasey) 

DARROW FLETCHER (Uni 55270) 
What is This (2:15) (Muriel/Jadan, 
BMI — Moore, Daniels) Production 
power and a solid vocal performance 
make the new Darrow Fletcher offer- 
ing a tasty blues market rhythm 
morsel. Flin: “Dolly Baby” (2:58) 
(Muriel, BMI — Mancha) 

GEORGE HUGHLEY (Buddah 203) 
That’s Why I Cry (2-38) (Bold Lad/ 
kama Sutra /Pai'kay, BMI — Carpenter, 
Hughley) Rousing blues vocal from 
George Hughley could raise enough 
action to prompt top forty looksees 
on this dance track. Flip: “You’re My 
Everything” (2:35) (Same credits) 

THE ASSEMBLED MULTITUDE 
(Atlantic 2780) 

Medley from “Superstar” (2:47) 
(Leeds, ASCAP — Webber, Rice) Tak- 
ine five themes from the LP best- 
seller, “Superstar,” the Assembled 
IMultitude side bustles stylishly into 
focus for teen and adult station con- 
sideration. Flip: “Where the Wood- 
bine Twineth” (2:35) (Double Dia- 
mond, BMI — Sellers) 

GREAT JONES (Tonsil 0004) 

Cripple Creek (2:11) (no credits 
available) Pulsing with power, this 
folk fan familiar is turned into top 
forty and FM fare. Long-shot. Flip: 
“I Ain’t Got Long” (5:14) (Tummy, 
BMI — Gutcheon, Tolmie, Cadieux) 

THE CLIQUE (White Whale 367) 
Judy, Judy, Judy (2:36) (Teeny Pop- 
per, ASCAP — Zekley, Bottler) Driver 
from the Clique gives the group a 
solid side for top forty playlists. 
Could climb into the sales chart pic- 
ture. Flip: no info. 

THE LOLLIPOPS (Atco 6787) 
Nothing’s Gonna Stop Our Love 
(2:22) (Don Kirshner, BMI — Barkan, 
Adams) Good teen side with a dance 
thrust to set it in motion with top 
forty stations. Flip: no info. 


BREWER & SHIPLEY (Kama Sutra 
516) 

One Toke Over the Line (3:16) 
(Talking Beaver, BMI — Brewer, i 
Shipley) Pretty folk styled material I 
with a top forty slant and FM power 
to broaden its exposure possibilities. 
Flip: “Oh Mommy” (3:03) (Same 
credits) i 

GILBERT O’SULLIVAN (Mam 3602) 
Nothing Rhymed (3:21) (Blackwood, 
BMI — O’Sullivan) Peculiarly Europe- - 
an pop ballad with a tinge of Peter 
Sarstedt flavoring. Long-shot, but 
with MOR and FM likelihood. Flip: 
“Everybody Knows” (2:15) (Man- 
agement, BMI-^ — O’Sullivan) 

MASON PROFFIT (Happy Tiger 
570) 

Good Friend of Mary’s (2:45) (Rol- • 
ling Meadows, ASCAP — Cameron) . 
Material with a country-folk tinge 
and Mason Proffit’s fine harmonies 
make this side an enticing top for- , 
ty/FM choice. Flip: “Hard Luck i 

Woman” (2:35) (Rolling Meadows, 
ASCAP— J & T Talbot) 

BOBBY WHITESIDE (Gregar 0105) 
Father D’Orio (3:31) (Trendsetters, ! 
ASCAP — Whiteside) Unusual materi- i 
al slanted toward teen interests and I 
an arrangement to tempt MOR ex- ' 
posure could give this side the 
breadth of exposure that 'will break it 
into top forty running. Flip: “Got a 
Funny Feeling” (2:55) (Same cred- . 
its) 

JERRY NAYLOR (Columbia 45292) 
Come On Love (2:42) (United Ar- . 
tists, ASCAP — Barnhill) In the “Ear- ' 
ly Morning Rain” manner, Jerry 
Naylor’s latest features a pretty bal- 
lad for MOR thought. Flip: no info. 

LESLEY DUNCAN (Date 1677) 

Love Song (2:54) (Blue Seas/Jac,

LIGHTING OLIVER’S WAY are the record company and film studio that 
just finished a pi’omotional film marking the release of his new single, “Light 
The Way”. The film was shot at Los Angeles’ Mac Arthur Park where this trio 
was busily confeii'ing: From left, Gene Weed of the Film Factory, Oliver, 
and Richard Oliver, artist relations manager for Liberty/U.A. The three- 
minute color film is being disti'ibuted this week to television stations around 
the country with the release of Oliver’s new single, “Light The Way”. As the 
record is released internationally, the film will be distributed in key markets 
around the world. This is the tenth film of its kind that Liberty/U.A. has pro- 
duced to back a new release.

Heywood To Perform, 
Cut In Nashville 

NASHVILLE — Pianist-composer 
Eddie Heywood has come to- Nash- 
ville for two weeks of intensive per- 
sonal appearance and recording 
work. 

Composer of “Canadian Sunset,” 
Heywood has begun a week-long en- 
gagement at Roger Miller’s King-Of- 
The-Road Hotel in Nashville. While 
appearing there, Heywood will ap- 
pear on local radio and television 
programs, including those of radio 
personality Eddie Parker and country 
star Jim Ed Brown. He has also been 
scheduled for “The Waking Crew” 
and the Noon Show. 

Heywood’s light-jazz piano style, 
with its emphasis on intricate pat- 
terns played by the left hand, will be j 
added to the country sounds of top 
Nashville studio musicians this week, 
according to Nashville’s Jack Cle- 
ment and New York publisher Ivan 
Mogull. This team was responsible | 
for the newly released, Avco- 
Embassy album, “Louis (Country and 
Western) Armstrong.” 

Heywood’s first instrumental hit 
was his celebrated treatment of “Be- 
gin The Beguine” in 1945. But he is 
probably best known for his multi- 
million-seller, “Canadian Sunset,” an 
original composition he recorded for 
RCA in 1956 with Hugo Winterhal- 
ter. This was followed by more in- 
strumental hits, such as “Soft Sum- 
mer Breeze.” Then “Canadian Sun- 
set” shot back into prominence, vo- 
cally this time, by the then unknown 
Andy Williams, for Cadence Records. 

In addition to recent composing 
work in New York, Heywood has 
just completed a suite, “Martha’s 
Vineyard Rhapsody,” titled in honor 
of his Cape Cod home. He performed 
it last summer, and it has been sub- 
mitted to Arthur Fiedler and the 
Boston Pops Orchestra. 

Jarvis Produces 
Milete Session 

NEW YORK — Poppy Records/RCA 
artist Shirl Milete has been scheduled 
for singles sessions at RCA’s Nash- 
ville studio with producer Felton Jar- 
vis, best known for his production 
work with Elvis Presley. Jarvis was 
set for the Poppy production chores 
by Lamar Fike of Hill and Range, 
who administrates Poppy’s Last 
Straw Music (BMI) which owns 
copyrights jointly with Hill and 
Range. 

One of the songs set for the Milete 
session was co-written by Shel Sil- 
verstein (A Boy Named Sue) and 
Eddie Rabbitt (Kentucky Rain). The 
other two are Last Straw songs 
which were written by Milete, who 
contributed three songs to Presley’s 
recent recording session. 


NEW YORK — Music publisher and 
composer royalty collections have aid 
from a new process that can identify 
any recorded sound by computer. 
Sound Signatures, Inc. of Los Ange- 
les, and Tracer, Inc., of Austin, are 
involved in an electronic device capa- 
ble of translating sound into com- 
puter-readable language. In con- 
junction with Tracer, a science-based 
company that designs and manufac- 
tures computer systems, a process 
was developed that can start with a 
radio broadcast of a recording and 
result in a computer-printed list that 
includes the recording title, com- 
poser, publisher, recording artist, 
recording company, etc. 

“Our system could have dramatic 
effects on the performing rights in- 
dustry, which is responsible for de- 
termining and paying the royalties to 
which music publishers and com- 
posers are entitled each time one of 
their recordings is played on the air 
and which total $25,000,000 a year,” 
says Louis Sackin, Sound Signatures 
president. 

“The present system has functioned 

Capitol Signs Gibson 

HOLLYWOOD — Bob Gibson, folk- 
singer, has been signed to a Clapitol 
Records contract. Originally Chicago 
based, Gibson had been inactive for 
some time but has now resumed his 
performing and recording career and 
for Capitol will record singles and 
albums that will also include his own 
material. 

Lee Ofman Signs 
Soundville Pact 

TEXAS — Jimmy Duncan, president 
of The Soundville Recording Studio 
in Houston, Texas, announced the 
signing of 24-year old singer- 
composer-guitarist Lee Ofman to a 
long-term recording contract. Ofman 
is under the personal management of 
Samuel Cammarata, president of 
Professional Management, Inc., who 
negotiated the contract. 

Ofman’s single debut will be a testi- 
monial song about Rocky Marciano 
entitled “Winner’s never quit. Quit- 
ter’s never win ...” A full scale 
promotional campaign is scheduled to 
support this first release, in conjunc- 
tion with Mercury Records who will 
distribute the Soundsville Label. 

An album entitled “Lee Ofman 
Sings Lee Ofman,” featuring some of 
Lee’s 150 published songs is sched- 
uled for release early in 1971. 


adequately with the manual monitor- 
ing available to date, but there is 
little doubt that the industry has 
been handicapped for years by the 
lack of more sophisticated electronic 
equipment and integrated data pro- 
cessing systems. Of approximately 30 
million hours of music broadcast 
each year by more than six thousand 
AM and FM radio stations in the 
country, we understand only a very 
small fraction of these hours are now 
sampled annually by the two largest 
organizations representing com- 
posers and publishers. 

Million Hours 

The Sound Signatures system can 
provide for one million hours or 
more of broadcast sound to be rec- 
orded on tape and converted into a 
computer language. This tape can 
then be used to identify the recording 
automatically, accurately, and much 
more quickly through comparison 
with a computer library of every rec- 
ording represented by any of the per- 
forming rights organizations that 
subscribe to the service. The system 
will be up-dated constantly to include 
appropriate new releases. The library 
will contain all recorded versions of 
any particular musical composition. 

“Our system,” Sackin continued, 
“will allow a much larger sample to 
be taken if requested by the sub- 
scribing performing rights organiza- 
tion, and the larger sample will as- 
sure a more accurate distribution of 
royalties. This automatic system will 
be far more efficient and should re- 
duce significantly the cost of monito- 
ring.” 

The Sound Signatures /Tracor sys- 
tem was demonstrated last week for 
two of the major performing rights 
organizations that presently use 
manual monitoring. 

“Both groups expressed interest in 
the possibilities outlined,” said Sack- 
in. “Once a contract is signed, Tracor 
will begin manufacturing production 
models of the equipment immediate- 
ly, and we would expect to be fully 
operational within 18 months. 

Also discussed by Sound Signa- 
tures’ executives were plans to moni- 
tor recorded radio and TV commer- 
cials so that program sponsors and 
advertising agencies can be provided 
with proof of performance. Another 
potential service incorporating the 
new process is the compilation of 
data indicating which recordings are 
being broadcast on a daily basis in 
specific geographic areas by specific 
radio stations, so that record compa- 
ny marketing and distribution plans 
can be adapted to important and pre- 
viously unavailable information. 


Mancini Scholarship 

HOLLYWOOD — A music scholar- 
ship-and-award made possible by a 
gift of more than $100,000 from com- 
poser Henry Mancini has been an- 
nounced at UCLA by dean Charles 
Speroni of the College of Fine Arts. 

Annually, the Mancini contribution 
will underwrite a “traditional” one- 
year scholarship of $2,500. It will be 
the Henry Mancini Scholarship for 
the Composition of Music for Motion 
Pictures and Television. It may be 
awarded to a graduate or undergradu- 
ate student for a variety of reasons, 
including how musically provocative 
his or her musical interests are 
deemed by a selection committee. 

The remaining $2,500 — which may 
be augmented some years, or may 
not be fully used in others — is the 
unique “Henry Mancini Fund for the 
Production of Music for Motion Pic- 
tures and Television.” 

Mr. Mancini described the idea be- 
hind the fund: 

“At the university a certain num- 
ber of gifted advanced students annu- 
ally become eligible to produce a 
‘thesis film’ — a motion picture for 
screen or television. Completion in 
full, including professionally record- 
ed music, often becomes a major 
financial obstacle.

man. Judging from this picture. Bob

NEW YORK— THE APOGEE & THE EXODUS 

It’s easy to call attention to a new group. There are cocktail parties, promo 
visits and similar functions that accomplish this. 

It’s even relatively simple to draw extra interest in a group with the beginning 
of a reputation. Use of new releases, single or LP, radio interviews and even a 
sales drive on the team’s catalog can work that trick. 

But, how do you “introduce” an act that needs no introduction? How do you 
go about recreating the image of creators when they decide to move in a new 
direction? 

Faced with this dilemma, Creedence Clearwater Revival brought together prob- 
ably the largest conglomeration of consumer and trade music writers ever 
clustered for a weekend at Cosmo’s Factory. 

With a material focal point in “Pendulum,” the group’s interest was rapidly 
diverted to the members of CCR as individuals. Whether spontaneous or planned, 
the shift proved vital to the entire function. For, on planes back to New York, 
Los Angeles or Detroit, conversation showed that nearly everyone regarded the 
event as a meeting with the men of Berkeley rather than a massive promo stunt 
on behalf of an LP that had already shipped more than a million units. 

Creedence’s figures, through their attitude even more than their words, 
showed that the festivities were a kind of giant appreciation for the dozens of 
interviewers, columnists, reviewers and critics whose function as communicator 
between artist and public is seldom recognized after the fact. 

Above the luncheon and a preview of their filmed special for television, after 
the dinner and mini-concert, and all through the day in Berkeley, the people of 
CCR offered an opportunity that they be seen ... as people, with names rather 
than the title drummer or guitarist with Creedence. it was a chance to talk and 
try to know them without the pressures of a deadline or a timetable interview, 
with no pressures of a one or two day in-town-for-a-concert jaunt and minus the 
emotional up or down of an appearance to cloud thought processes. 

In short, it was a “come on over, let’s shoot some pool” weekend. The only 
differences were that the foursome showed a movie instead of their latest roll 
of snapshots: and they played a miniature concert rather than turn on the stereo. 

But their bigger than record sound on stage only served to show how basically 
normal the Fogerty’s, Doug Clifford and Stu Cook really are. They are four 
people, guys with names and personal interests — except that they have become 
lost within the image of their group. 

“We waited until this point in our career,” John Fogerty said, “so that this 
whole thing wouldn’t be looked on as a hype.” Though he may not have thought 
so, the trip was a pioneering coup in breaking down the barriers between star 
stature artists and the people who often can only speculate on their works.

HOLLYWOOD — THE OLD XMAS TREE BALL GAME 

It’s that Monday morning quarterback time of year again, when we tie our 
“insights” package with mistletoe, nostalgia and exculpations. Fanfarring a few 
successful divinities and disremembering unretrieved fumbles. 

We kicked off last year’s column by proclaiming Joni Mitchell, the taffeta 
patterned poet of Laurel Canyon, as our “hands down west coast girl of the 

year.” It was one of our longest runs. At least NARAS agreed. A few months 

after, she fielded her first Grammy as “folk artist of tthe year.” 

But we were forced to punt in the same issue when we insisted that Laura 

Nyro, after creating half a dozen stoned soul smashes for other acts, would 
“have her very own top ten single in ’70.” But who would have suspected that 
she’s be lateraling to Barbra Streisand, of all People?” 

In Feb. we crowed about our ability to introspect the mind machinations of 
Motion Picture Academy members. Suggesting that Bacharach and David “might 
soon be picking up a pile of compensatory ballots from members who might 
recollect that ‘Alfie,’ ‘What’s New, Pussycat’ and 'Look of Love’ were award 
deserving songs . . . perhaps just enough to upset Rod McKuen’s ‘Jean.’ ’ 
“Raindrops” fell on McKuen in April. And Bacharach ran away with a couple of 
Oscars and a few Grammys. Our pick for best male flick performer was Dustin 
Hoffman. An intercepted pass. But selecting Maggie Smith as best female was 
a scoring run. 

Still we failed to convert when we caught Roberta Flack at Shelly's Manne 
Hole a few weeks after, suggesting that Atlantic would “do well to rush her 
recording of ‘Rev. Lee’ before other labels cover.” Atlantic did release it soon 
after. We haven’t heard it since. End zone fumble. 

About the same time we named Freda Payne as our west coast “Golden Girl’ 
of the week, an obvious pun, and suggested that her “Band of Gold” single could 
be Invictus’ first gold record. A completion. 

When Mediarts released Dorey Previn's “On My Way To Where” LP, we won 
dered why she had “substituted a microphone in a recording studio for ar 
analyst and a couch.” Adding that “like a summer cold, it could catch on.” II 
didn’t. A one yard sweep. 

Later that month we went out on a limb for A&M’s “The Bigger You Are (The 
Harder You Fall)” by the Sisters Love. Another fumble. 

In late August we encountered Elton John at the Troubadour and predicted 
that “Your Song” could go top ten if Uni was inclined to release a single. Labe 
finally did. A 63 yard field goal. 

On September 5 we predicted that Bobby Darin would soon be joining Motowr 
Records. The same play was used by John Gibson in the Hollywood Reporter 
But months after. Three points for our side. 

Elektra’s Bread got buttered by us about the same time. “It Don’t Matter tc 
Me” was our personal pick as Grammy record of the year. A bomb pass with 
receivers covered. Still the side did climb into the top ten. 

Another single, by an artist named Jake Holmes, was acclaimed a montf 
after. “So Close” came so close to being a monster. Yet it was Holmes’ firs 
substantial chart title. And it brought him to the Troubadour as a starring ac 
Creedence Clearwater Revival

NEW YORK (cont’d from page 96) 

TERRY KNIGHT: STANDING UP FOR THE BIG GUY 

Last week our own Kenny Kerner made a few observations about rock concerts 
at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Producer Terry Knight does not agree. 
In keeping with our "Insight & Sound” policy of letting every man have his say 
(at least until we are tired of listening), we hereby throw open the floor to Terry 
who comes out of his corner smartly via this letter, received at our Cash Box 
Manhattan offices earlier this week: 

“Having read your recent indictment entitled Madison Square Garden: The Big 
Grey Complex Complex (Cash Box, Dec. 19) in which you refer to a rock per- 
formance there as a great "musical murder" and, after having read Bill Graham’s 
recently published Open Letter in which he pleas to take the music out of the 
huge arenas and “back to the roots” of the smaller ballrooms and theaters, I am 
compelled to write this letter on behalf of not only the handful of rock musicians 
in the world who have the prominence to be presented before capacity Madison 
Square Garden audiences, but the literally hundreds of thousands of rock fans 
who have attended their performances. 

By lashing out at a defenseless “concrete giant” for its inability to measure 
up to your standards as a “rock palace”, you insult every act and every one of 
their fans who saw every sold-out performance by the Rolling Stones, Led Zep- 
pelin, Sly & The Family Stone, Ten Years After and Grand Funk Railroad for the 
virtue of Madison Square Garden’s ability to be either comfortable or convenient. 
Television, they tell us, supplies those qualities and you can bet that 20,000 
Rolling Stones fans will bump and laugh and cry together for hours at the Garden 
before a single one would sit at home and watch one minute of it on the tube, 
if they had a choice. 

Sadder still, is the fact that you have seemingly forgotten that comfort and 
convenience is simply no longer essential to the enjoyment of music. Proof of 
that came lat Woodstock and Atlanta and the Isle of Wight. Where groups before 
them were weaned on ballroom audiences of 2,500, the most recent success at 
the Garden, Grand Funk Railroad, was literally born in front of an audience of 
180,000 people in the 110 degree heat of Atlanta’s first Pop Festival. There were 
no comforts or conveniences necessary to enjoy the music there either. 

Truly, today more than ever before, the music DOES belong to the people, 
despite you "old timers” who insist on sitting on your butts in the $6.50 seats 
(for free). 

No, the Garden will probably never be known as a rock palace, but who cares? 
Images and titles are a thing of the past — we don’t rely on them anymore. Rock 
has matured with its children and neither are concerned with what you, the 
critic; the complainer, thinks about its comforts and conveniences anymore. The 
day of trying to find new ways of making rock and its environment fashionable 
are gone and you, it seems, have been left behind with the others who are still 
looking for a “feeling for music” or a suitable “atmosphere” in which to hear it. 

So next time there’s a rock show don’t worry about "life at the Garden”. It 
simply doesn’t relate to you. Do everyone a favor and take your own advice — 
buy the album and stay home. You can bet somebody out there sure as hell 
wants your ticket — and the smart money says he’ll be able to find his Way to 
HIS seat.” 


HOLLYWOOD (cont’d from page 96) 

this past week. A fair catch. 

In Nov. we praised “Jesus Christ Superstar,” scoring it a “brave, substantial 
and majestic experience.” We figured this might make a fine quote for future 
local Decca advertising. Instead they chose to select Rock, Time and Newsweek’s 
rhetoric, even though we did add “it will also undoubtedly be an enormous com- 
mercial success.” TD pass. But no receiver. 

In a recent column we previewed Harry Nilsson’s forthcoming RCA Ip (“The 
Point”), noting that it was a “slightly absurd coalescence of Ray Bradbury’s 
‘Fahrenheit 451' and Pete Seeger’s ‘Abi Yo Yo.’ ” Even though we added “it 
should be his most successful Ip to date, Nilsson no longer even nods to us at 
Martoni’s. Record is being shipped this week, we hear. It should have everybody 
talkin’. 

It was championship year for such diverse coast talents as the Watts 103rd 
St. Band, Elvis Presley, Mark Lindsay, Burt Bacharach, Steppenwolf, 3 Dog Nite, 
Neil Diamond, Glen Campbell, Diana Ross, Joni Mitchell, the Fifth Dimension, 
James Taylor, Kenny Rodgers & the First Edition, Bobby Sherman, Tommy Roe, 
Norman Greenbaum, Merle Haggard, Dave Mason, Herb Alpert and Creedence 
Clearwater. All of them came, at least, within field goal range in our annual year 
end poll. 

Our own personal favorites of the year included: 

ON RECORDS — McCartney, Harrison, Lennon, Grateful Dead, Creedence Clear- 
water, Melanie, Van Morrison, Neil Diamond, Jake Holmes, Simon & Garfunkel. 

IN PERSON — John Stewart, Woody Guthrie Concert, Bobby Darin, Liza Min- 
nelli, Jackie DeShannon, Sammy Davis, Bill Medley, Laura Nyro, Tony Newley, 
Diana Ross. 

NEW ACTS — Elton John, Jesse Winchester, Carole King, Sugarloaf, Kris Kris- 
tofferson, everyone involved in “Jesus Christ Superstar,” World’s Greatest Jazz 
Band. 

MOST UNDERRATED — Kinks, Randy Newman, Nilsson, Bread, Jake Holmes, 
Byrds, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Jo Mama, Lettermen, Seals and Crofts. 

West Coast Girl of the Year: We were all set to toss this pass at Anne Murray. 
But, even though she’ll be spending months here in ’71 as an almost regular on 
the Glen Campbell Show, she’s not eligible because her hometown is Halifax, 
Nova Scotia. So instead we’re tossing the award at Lissa Morrow, a comparitive 
unknown who made her tv debut this past fall on “Marcus Welby” and might 
conceivably be seen this coming summer in a re-run of the same. A former west 
coast girl of the week, Lissa is currently starring as our Cash Box coin fnachine 
editor. 

We wish all of the above — and you — -a jollier ’71. With peace. 


PENDULUM PILGRIMAGE— The foursome that made Fantasy a Reality hosted 
an odd but joyous celebration in Berkeley last weekend. More than 100 key press 
reps from across the U.S. and abroad were flown in to mark the introduction of 
their 6th and latest Ip, “Pendulum” which has already racked up orders of over 
a million units. Housed in Berkeley’s pre-world war ! built Clairmont Hotel and 
feted with lunch and dinner at Cosmos, an ancient factory which is now the 
play and practice ground for the group, fourth estate also glimpsed the world 
premiere screening of Creedence’s first tv special, “In Concert,” produced by 
National General. Total cost to Creedence and Fantasy — about $35,000. It was 
climaxed by a banquet-dinner and live Creedence concert. A low bow to Rogers, 
Cowan, Saul Zaentz, Creedence and Bobbi Cowan for the memorable freeload 
affair. 


McKENDREE SPRING: OUT OF THE CAFETERIAS 

When in less than a month you have played two New York gigs, at Carnegie i 
Hall, and the Fillmore East, and when you have shared the bill for those gigs ! 
with names like Jethro Tull, Leon Russell and Elton John, then you know you | 
have had a very heavy few weeks. McKendree Spring has had a very heavy few j 
weeks. i 

Not so heavy, however, that they didn’t have some time to relax and think I 
about a group career, which after a year or so of moving along in quiet first gear, 
has suddenly begun to shift into something speedier. 

Two album releases and an equal number of singles comprises the recorded | 
output to date of this four man group, which consists of Fran McKendree (vocals, ; 
guitar), Larry Tucker (bass), Mike Dreyfuss (violin, viola) and Martin Siutsky i 
(electric guitar). 

But when you consider that their first LP, titled simply “McKendree Spring,” 
went the way of many initial album releases, and when you recall that the band’s i 
first single, a little thing called “What Will We Do With The Child,” was roundly | 
banned on radio stations, then you appreciate McKendree Spring’s satisfaction 
at the way things have been going of late. 

“One time we played a college,” recalls Marty Slutsky, “and the concert was 
in the cafeteria!” Despite such hardships, a few spins on the coffee house and 
college circuits helped the quartet to increase their following. And proved that 
they were an exciting in-person act, not just one which could duplicate the sound 
of their records. 

At Carnegie and Fillmore, they had audiences on their feet cheering, though 
many people in the house had originally been drawn there by the featured acts. 
Though they earned plaudits as a group, they also excelled in their individual 
efforts. Mike Dreyfuss, for instance, in an extended electric violin solo, plucked 
some notes which may still be reverberating somewhere around the city. ' 

The group blends original material (the work of Fran McKendree) in with 
songs of artists such as Bob Dylan, Tom Rush and James Taylor. Interestingly 
enough, they prefer to take and develop lesser known works. For example, in the 
case of Dylan, they turned to the song “John Wesley Harding,” not exactly one 
of his most covered numbers. McKendree Spring offered a memorable ^.version. 

Like most bands of distinction their sound is difficult to define. No matter. 
They are moving up fast, and should continue to do so. 

LAST CHANCE — Christmas is only a few days away. Even as you read this you 
are probably surrounded by reindeer and elves. Isn’t it the ideal time to reach 
for your checkbook and dasher off a contribution to our Toys For Tots campaign? 
The bread will go toward buying Christmas gifts for orphan kids in the New York 
area. Please help. 

This issue we’d like to thank the following contributors: Gordon Bossin, Harriet 
Wasser, Lenny Scheer, Mercury Records, Stan Mills, Mr. & Mrs. Fach, Vi Varec 
and Morty Wax. 


SHORT TAKES — Burlington-Felsted’s Bert Siegelson, director of professional

with Russell as a backup vocalist . . . Dob Jones has left Rogers, Cowan and 
Brenner and may now be contacted at International Management and Jobette, 
divisions of Motown, at their Sunset address . . . Stan Moress has quit Jay 
Bernstein’s Public Relations firm and can be reached at MGM Records . . . Jack 
Schnyder, former account exec with A&M Records and now heading his own ad 
agency, tied skiis with non-pro Merry Pearson in Tahoe last weekend — while 
Lee Lasseff, co-owner of White Whale, also I do’d to Elaine Dillard, assistant to 
singer John Hartford. Along with Lou Adler and Johnny Magnus, Schnyder and 
Lasseff had been rated among the top four most eligible west coast bachelors 
in our trade. Second down, two to go.

Merc Signs 
R&B Songster 
Roy Brown 

LOS ANGELES — Mercu^ Records 
has signed vet R&B singer Roy 
Brown. Label is rush releasing 
Brown’s single, “Love For Sale,” pre- 
viously issued on Brown’s own 
Friendship label. 

According to Mercury west coast 
A&R director Bob Todd, Brown’s 
success at the recent Monterey Jazz 
Festival caused the 45-year-old per- 
former to record at his own expense 
the song which he and his wife (the 
“G. Norman” credited on the single) 
composed. 

In the past. Brown has recorded 
for several labels, starting out in the 
late 1940s and early ’50s on DeLuxe 
(and later King) Records. One of the 
first of Brown’s string of chart- 
busting r&b hits was the 1947 “Good 
Rocking Tonight,” later recorded by 
Wynonie Harris, Elvis Presley, Pat 
Boone, Ricky Nelson, Arthur Prysock 
and James Brown. Brown’s other hits 
(most of which he wrote as well as 
recorded) include “ ‘Long About Mid- | 
night,” “Miss Fanny Brown,” “Rainy ' 
Weather Blues,” “Don’t Love No- 
body” and “Hard Luck Blues” — 
with “Let the Four Winds Blow’ (a 
1957 Imperial release) a certified mil- 
lion-seller. 

Under terms of the arrangement 
with producer Todd, the Friendship 
Records issue of “Love For Sale” 
will be discontinued and Brown’s fu- 
ture work will be for the Mercury 
label.

NEW YORK — Jazz pianist Bill 
Evans has signed a new recording

On Black Hymn 

NEW YORK — “Lift Ev’ry Voice 
and Sing,” the black hymn, is among 
the most anthologized songs of all 
time. In the last three months alone, 
15 requests for permission to reprint 
the song in various publications have 
been granted by Edward B. Marks 
Music. Some of the publications in- 
clude, An Illustrated History of 
Black Americans by J. H. Franklin 
(Time-Life Books), Black Studies in 
American Literature by R. Kendricks 
& C. Levitt (Oxford Book Co.), Mar- 
tin Luther King, Jr., Boy with a

“Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” was 
written by black poet James Weldon 
Johnson and was scored by his 
brother J. Rosamond. It was soon 
taken to heart by the black people 
j which led the NAACP to adopt it as 
its official song. Recently, the South- 
ern Christian Leadership Conference 
has been promoting the hymn as the 
“Black National Anthem of Amer- 
ica.” 

“Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” has 
been recorded by some of the top 
American singers, its most recent 
recording being by Merry Clayton 
(Ode 70).

MANCINI PLAYS THE THEME FROM ‘LOVE 
STORY’— Henry Mancini— RCA LSP-4466 

Hank, who has turned more to interpreta- 
tion than composing of late, comes up with a 
bonanza for both Mancini addicts and movie 
buffs with this latest album release. A beauti- 
ful version of the ‘Love Story’ theme with 
Mancini as piano soloist leads off the Ip. Also 
included are Hank’s own Theme from "The 
Hawaiians”, "Whistling Away The Dark,” from 
“Darling Lili,” and “Loss Of Love” from “Sun- 
flower.” Highlight of the set, though, is Man- 
cini’s version of the Ennio Morricone-penned 
“The Harmonica Man” from Sergio Leone’s 
magnificent epic Western “Once Upon A Time 
In The West.” 


THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD — David 
Bowie — Mercury SR 61325 

One begins to despair. If “Space Oddity” 
didn't break David Bowie, what will? Well, 
Mercury might try “Black Country Rock,” a 
cut off this second American Bowie ip, as his 
new single. David is a huge talent. His writing 
is unique in all of music and part of his rec- 
ognition problem stems from the fact that he 
is way ahead of mainstream rock. If you feel 
you might like to get in on someone now v/ho 
others will be shouting about next year pick 
this up. Best cuts; “All The Madmen,” “After 
All,” “Running Gun Blues,” and the title cut. 
But every track trembles with excitement and 
musical expertise. 


IT’S IMPOSSIBLE — Perry Como — RCA LSP 
4473 

That most relaxed of all crooners. Perry 
Como, just can't stop himself from making 
beautiful albums. This time around the Grand 
Old Man serves up a host of recent charters 
including “Raindrops Keep Falling On My 
Head,” “Something,” “Snowbird,” “A House 
Is Not A Home,” “El Condor Pasa,” “(They 
Long To Be) Close To You,” “1 Think I Love 
You,” and “We’ve Only Just Begun,” among 
others. An easy, flowing MOR set if there 
ever was one. 


BRIAN HYLAND — Uni 73097 

The singing-production team up of Brian 
Hyland and Del Shannon have not only given 
us a brilliant hit single in “Gypsy Woman,” but 
now present us with a brilliant hit album that 
includes the hit plus “Maria/Somewhere,” 
“Lonely Teardrops,” and “The Thrill Is Gone.” 
Not only that but Brian and Del have combined 
to write five excellent cuts that continually 
show Hyland off in changing moods. “Drivin’ 
Me Crazy” is a powerful percussive number, 
“I’m Without You” is a big beat ballad, and 
“You & Me” is a carousel-rhythmed track. 
What a fine Ip.

IN AND OUT OF FOCUS— Focus— Sire SES 
97027 

Hard to believe that Focus is a Continental 
group because they just don’t sound it. As far 
away from Shocking Blue and Golden Earring 
as it's possible to get, this Dutch quartet lays 
down plenty of eclectic and creative rock mu- 
sic. The lengthy cuts “Focus” and “Anony- 
mous” show, not only the group’s flair for 
interesting writing but allows them to exhibit 
their force as an integrated unit. Jan Akker- 
man, formerly with Brainbox, plays flashing 
quicksilver guitar which is often hard but never 
boring and the rest of the group is outstanding 
especially Martijn Dresden’s bass. An unusual 
and highly stimulating debut. There’s hope for 
Holland yet!

DISGUISED AS A NORMAL PERSON— David 
Steinberg — Elektra-EKS 74065 

David Steinberg is no ordinal^ comedian. 
He is an interpreter of reality. His dialogue is 
so true to life, that most of the time you find 
yourself laughing at an incident that you've 
already experienced but couldn’t put into 
words. Steinberg is young and aware, and the 
tracks “The Coast, Bullshit, And Nixon,” and 
“The Dating Game,” reflect his awareness. 
Also included in the album are various selec- 
tions from his Bible sermons, “Joshua,” “Lot,” 
and “Moses.” Recorded live at the Bitter End 
in New York, this LP is as contemporary as 
tomorrow!

I CAN HEAR IT NOW/THE SIXTIES— Cronkite/ 
Friendly — Columbia M3X 30353 

Cariying on the Edward R. Murrow/Fred 
Friendly combo that put together the “I Can 
Hear It Now” album covering 1933-1945, Wal- 
ter Cronkite and Friendly cover the major 
events of the Sixties in this special tree album 
set. Beginning with a Prologue by Stephen 
Spender over the sounds of John F. Kennedy’s 
funeral cortege and ending with an Epilogue 
by Archibald MacLeish this is a monumental 
work in editing and collation. You can hear 
it now. 


WORDS — Julius La Rosa — Metromedia MD 
1036 

La Rosa returns. The singer turned disk 
jockey turned singer presents eleven choice 
selections for predominantly MOR listening. 
Given the inimitable La Rosa treatment are 
James Taylor’s “Fire And Rain” and Lennon/ 
McCartney’s “The Long And Winding Road” 
from the soft rock field; “Being Alive,” from 
Broadway’s “Company,” the melodic “Where 
The Sun Never Shines,” “I, Capricorn,” and 
“And I’ll Be Gone From Yesterday,” among 
others. A fine album release from a singer 
who’s been away for some time. 


DON’T HOLD BACK— Sky— RCA-LSP 4457 

Sky is a Detroit rock trio that sounds as if 
they came over on a plane from England. The 
three members of the group who range in age 
from 16-19, mixed the album well between 
booming rock, and soft acoustic ballads. With 
the help of Jimmy Miller, Gary Wright, and 
Andrew Johns, who produced the package, 
and a no holds barred promotion campaign 
from RCA, the group is almost guaranteed 
immediate success. All tracks on the LP are 
good, but “Goodie Two Shoes,” “I Still Do,” 
“How’s That Treatin' Your Mouth, Babe?” and 
“One Love” deserve special attention. 



JERRY BUTLER SINGS ASSORTED SOUNDS — 
Mercury-SR 61320 

Jerry Butler returns with the aid of assorted 
friends and relatives and a brand new package 
of hit material including his most recent chart 
topper, “Special Memory.” Though most of 
the song titles seem to ask questions (“How 
Did We Lose It?,” “How Does It Feel?,” “What 
Is It?,” “Why Are You Leaving Me,” and “Do 
You Finally Need A Friend,”) the only thing 
that remains certain is that this new LP will 
be Jerry’s biggest yet. 


STAND BY YOUR MAN — Candi Staton — Fame- ' 
ST 4202 r 

All of a sudden, Candi Staton is a star! With I 
the immediate acceptance of “Stand By Your t 
Man,” an album of the same name was re- [ 
leased, and all indications are that it too will « 
be warmly received. Candi delivers memorable I 
performances on “How Can I Put Out The 
Flame,” “Mr. And Mrs. Untrue,” “Sweet Feel- 1 
ing,” and “Freedom Is Just Beyond The Door.” I 
Album serves as a vehicle around which Candi il 
weaves her magnificently soulful vocals. 


RIGHT ON! — The Original Last Poets — Jug- |1 
gernaut 8802 || 

Billed as “an expedition into inner self for " 
the listener,” this collection of poetic works I' 
is also heard in the upcoming film, “Right [ 
On.” Most of the pieces reflect a world of j- 
stark reality and they are presented in a forth- ' 
right manner to the accompaniment of drum- jj 
ming rhythms. LP was recorded live at a New j 
York theatre. Interesting and often provoca- J 
tive set. |

Jimmy Webb/ 

BITTER END, NYC— Jim Webb was 
the songwriter everyone became fa- 
miliar with though few really knew. 
Now, he’s become Jimmy Webb, the 
performer that few are familiar with. 

The distinction is a vital one for 
Jim was known as the writer of soft, 
longing love ballads and cerebral la- 
ments. Jimmy is the prophet of deva- 
station. 

The live Webb who opened at the 
Bitter End last Wednesday offers a 
verbal barrage that rips at the visage 
formed by others’ performances of his 
material with the force of hammered 
piano style, broken brick vocals and 
the knife-blade urgency of his images. 

On stage, Webb’s songs are not the 
lingering Glen Campbell readings or 
the tenderly familiar “Didn’t We” as 
it has been sung countless times. His 
irritating sound makes “McArthur 
Park,” “By the Time I Get to 
Phoenix,” “The Worst That Could 
Happen” and “Didn’t We” four bitter 
comments by a narrator who isn’t 
fondly looking back on an ended ro- 
mance — but the caustic notes of a 
singer spurned. The performer is 
damning, not reminiscing. 

Suddenly the images are sharpened 
with material from his Reprise LP, 
and the writer’s vision is further en- 
venomed by a Sodom and Gomorrah 
mythology updated to a tale titled 
“Jerusalem” and cautioning “get out 
of L.A.” Or by a tribute to “P. F. 
Sloan,” a writer best remembered for 
“Eve of Destruction.” Or even by his 
single selection from another man’s 
repertoire, Frank Zappa’s “My Guitar 
Wants to Kill Your Mama,” which 
gives Webb his parting line to the 
audience. 


Aliofta Haynes 

Suddenly, the Webb (Jim) is gone, 
I but viewers are left with the knowl- 
[ edge that he was only the projection 
of interpreters who were rendering 
Webb’s material without his misan- 
thropic guidance. After all, the Webb 
produced “The Yard Went on For- 
! ever” and other LP’s held ample 
[ clues of his full intention in their 
“Nagasaki housewives” anguish. 

But, even in the revelation, Webb 
remains a mysterious figure, for be- 
tween songs, he is the mild, touching 
figure many must have come to see. 
Introducing several of his songs, 
Webb told of his living in London and 
seeing a Woman wade into rotting 
flotsam and garbage to free a trapped 
seagull; or of the term in college 
when he cut exams to write the book 
and music for a musical though it 
meant flunking finals in his music 
major. 

Even his voice changes between 
songs, losing the gruffness that makes 
him almost offensive to hear. Almost, 
for by the third song his vocals 
merged with the messages and musical 
attack to become an extension of 
Webb (Jimmy) the devastator. 

With him at the End is Aliotta 
Haynes, three interesting new mu- 
sicians on Ampex Records who work 
together much like an Ozark barber- 
shop trio. The team’s material centers 
on blues variants brought into a cur- 
rent trapping through some fine in- 
strumental work with amplified bass 
and acoustic guitar (occasionally in- 
cluding a harmonica solo). 

Their own works generally tend to 
feature talking blues, but with modern 
harmonies to accent pop effectiveness.

The Moody Blues 
Trapeze 

CARNEGIE HALL, NYC— You wake I 
from dreams but it isn’t time to rise. 
You look around in the certainty that 
you can return again at will to the 
near world of frozen images and ) 
fleeting shadows. Satisfied you plunge 
back. 

At a Moody Blues concert you stir 
as a song comes to completion. You 
glance about at the Carnegie Hall 
capacity crowd knowing that soon 
you’ll slip back into the land of their 
music. Hearing the first notes of the 
mellotron, you do. 

There is a dreamlike quality to the 
music of the Moody Blues and at their 
most recent concert, it was enhanced 
by a lush violet light which enclosed 
them. It was a tribute to the artistry 
of the Moodies that although they 
performed familiar material, the in- 
terest of the audience never flagged. 

In a concert as superb as this one, 
it is always difficult to single out spe- 
cial moments. Still we could mention 
the singing of Justin Hayward on 
“Question,” as well as Mike Finder’s 
work, both vocally and mellotronically 
on “Melanchoy Man.” 

Among the other favorites which 
were presented: “Tuesday Afternoon,” 
“Have You Heard” (this in super ex- 
tended version) ; “Tortoise And The 
Hare,” and “Nights In White Satin.” 
The group closed with their ti’adition- 
al finale “Legend Of A Mind.” 

The Moody Blues are a sturdy band. 
Their music has given them a strength 
and assurance which they can present 
to audiences everywhere. That they 
are thoroughly accomplished musi- 
cians and performers is clear from 
the moment they strike their first 
note. 

Since they first came together as a 
group, some half dozen years ago, 
they have continued to grow and to 
seek out new avenues of sound. At 
Carnegie Hall this week they had 
only their latest triumph. 

Preceding them on the bill was 
Trapeze, a three man group which 
has been produced by the Moodies for 
their Threshold label. They could be 
faulted for some tuning lapses but 
not for the intensity with which they 
played. e.k. 


Jake Holmes 

TROUBADOUR, L.A. — On the heels 
of a highly successful Euopean tour, 
Jake Holmes retuimed to Los Angeles 
for the first time in four years to 
kick off what will undoubtedly be a 
highly successful American tour. 
Holmes, who had been on the verge of 
success for some time, finally broke 
thru with his “So Close” single this 
Fall. 

For his Troubadour opening. 
Holmes had planned a little some- 
thing different : electric accompani- 
ment, but things went a little awry 
and by the time he went on stage he 
was down to his own acoustic guitar 
backed by Ted Irwin’s acoustic. The 
combination proved effective, as it has 
so often in the past, and Holmes 
turned out a mixture of old and new 
material that turned on the assembled 
guests. Although Holmes has lately 
turned to writing some very moving 
love ballads, his old struggle with 
social alienation was very evident in 
his set opener, “I Live In A Suitcase 
Room.” “The Very First Time” is one 
of those aforementioned lost-love 
songs and Holmes wove a magic spell I 
with it. “Genuine Imitation Life,” 
which served as the basis for the ' 
Four Seasons’ “Imitation Life Gaz- 
zette” album, was pulled out of the 
catalog for a successful reprise, and I 
Holmes went even further back into 
his past for a satiric tribute to Holly- 
wood war movies. “So Close” provided 
a strong finale to the abbreviated set 
i and left the audience %\ith a warm 
i afterglow. Holmes himself hasn’t 
I changed much, but the audience seems I 
I to have matured enough to celebrate 
I him. a.r. I 


‘Touch’ 

VILLAGE ARENA THEATRE, NYC 
— A musical which makes you feel 
reasonably good. That may not seem 
like much of an achievement but a look 
around at some of the current shows 
tells you that it is. “Touch,” which 
opened recently in the East Village, 
is not a blockbuster, but it’s so appeal- 
ing that audiences shouldn’t really 
mind. 

“Touch” is a communal musical, 
one which grew and developed out 
of a summer theatre workshop. In 
real life the players live together in 
a farmhouse. Since the play depicts 
some of the joys and trials of form- 
ing and maintaining a commune, there 
is a definite air of authenticity to 
the proceedings. 

The score, composed by Kenn Long 
and Jim Crozier, has charm and se- 
renity. It is rock but it is gentle. It 
contains several memorable tunes, in- 
cluding one called “Reaching, Touch- 
ing,” which serves as a finale for the 
first act. Two others, “Watching” and 
“Susan’s Song” are soft reminders, 
while the entire troupe does justice/ 
to upbeaters such as “Garden Song” i 
and “City Song.” j 

Though the cast comes across as ■ 
a family, individuals stand out by | 
virtue of their talent. Foremost i 
among them is Barbara Ellis who ! 
brings a rare quality to the role of I 
Guiness. As an actress she is capa- j 
ble of communicating a genuine feel- j 
ing and she has an exceptional comic 
flair. Also fine: Norman Jacob as an 
A.W.O.L. serviceman and composer j 
Kenn Long as a Texan in search of f 
the mountains. ! 

“Touch” is an extremely likeable : 
show, one which aims to please and i 
succeeds quite nicely. i

Fred Waring Show 

PHILHARMONIC HALL, NYC— For : 
several decades now Fred Waring and ; 
his Pennsylvanians have been bring- ! 
ing their music to the people of 
America, via coast to coast tours. Last 
week they paid one of their rare 
visits to New York and delighted a | 
Lincoln Center audience with a f 
spirited program of old favorites, : 
patriotic medleys, as well as a sam- ;i 
pling of more contemporary material. 

A long time ago, Fred Waring j 
found a formula for entertaining audi- , 
ences and he has wisely stuck with it. f 

At Lincoln Center eveiything came t| 
together, the choral singing, the in- 
strumental work, the jokes, as it has 
in the past. A special attraction was 
the appearance of Lette Rehnolds, a ^ 
former member of the entourage, in 
a guest role to offer an exciting “I ‘ 
Love You, Porgy.” She is a superb ,1 
vocal stylist. All in all, a pleasant || 
evening of song. !|

stations are jumping all over them- 
selves in an attempt to break a hit 
single by today’s, or tomorrow’s, un- 
derground stars.” Podolor named 
such artists as Van Morrison, San- 
tana, Norman Greenbaum, Chicago 
and Steve Stills as beneficiaries of 
the new feeling. 

’58 Goldie 

Podolor has been watching the sin- 
gles market for some time. He earned 
his first gold disk in 1958 as co- 
producer and co-writer of Sandy Nel- 
son’s “Teen Beat.” In that same year, 
Podolor opened American Recording 
Studios in the Palladium Building on 
Los Angeles’ Sunset Blvd. and helped 
create some of rock’s biggest hits, 
including “Alley Oop,” “Mr. Custer,” 
“Honest I Do,” “Cherry Pie,” “A 
Thousand Stars,” “Peanut Butter” 
and “Walk Don’t Run.” 

Podolor spent a brief stint in the 
Army, where he toured with the Spe- 
cial Services division and won the 
Army World Wide Talent Show. A 
and Blues Image), they were the re- 
protege of classical guitarist Vincente 
Gomez, Podolor has put his musical 
knowledge to good use in recent 
years. 

In 1964, in conjunction with his 
parents and his brother, Don, Podo- 
lor moved American Studios to 
North Hollywood. Podolor concen- 
trated on running his studio, and 
soon was engineering for such artists 
as Donovan, the Electric Prunes, 
Three Dog Night, Steppenwolf and 
the Iron Butterfly. But he couldn’t 
keep his producer’s talent bottled up, 
and soon began getting more and 
more involved with the music. Even- 
tually, he became producer for the 
last three acts and picked up several 
more along the way, including Blues 
Image Jelly Roll and the Dillards. 

Podolor’s right hand man is Bill 
Cooper, who helped build American 
Studios from the ground up.

NASHVILLE — Artist-agent Buddy 
Lee has announced the signing of 
Grand Ole Opry star Jimmy C. 
Newman. Newman’s career spans 
some 25 years, beginning deep in the 
fabled bayou country of southern 
Louisiana. Jimmy is recognized as a 
pioneer of the cajun-country sound. 
He got his real start by forming a 
TV and radio show on KPLC-TV in 
Lake Charles, Louisiana. An active 
member of WSM’s Grand Ole Opry, 
Jimmy is also a member of the 
Louisiana Hayride and has appeared 
on scores of syndicated and network 
TV shows. Newman’s hit records for 
the Decca people include “Cry, Cry, 
Darling”, “Seasons Of My Heart”, 
“Fallen Star”, “Big Mamou”, “Aliga- 
tor Man”, and dozens of others, in- 
cluding his albums. 

At the ceremonies, Buddy Lee said, 
“It’s a genuine pleasure to welcome a 
star with the magnitude of Jimmy C. 
Newman to our ever-growing talent 
roster.” 

Said Newman, “I’m delighted to 
have Buddy Lee for my booking 
agent. I’ve known and admired him 
for years”.

Country Roundup 


C & W Singles Reviews 


Jerry Smith says, “A person all 
wrapped up in himself makes a very 
small package. . . . The Johnny Cash 
television program that featured the 
great Louis Armstrong’s guest ap- 
pearance has been scheduled for a 
repeat broadcast on ABC-TV Decem- 
ber 30. Originally telecast October 
28, the program coincided with the 
release on Avco-Embassy Records 
“Louis (Country and Western) 
Armstrong”, a milestone in the his- 
tory of country music. According to 
the album’s producers. Jack Clement 
and Ivan Mogull, a single will be 
released after the first of the year. 
Titles: “Miller’s Cave” and “You Can 
Have Her”. 

Combine’s Kris Kristofferson is 
where the action is. Ray Price recent- 
ly recorded six sides penned by Kris 
. . . Because of the success of this 
year’s Nashville Songwriters Associ- 
ation Hall of Fame banquet, the NS A 
board of directors has voted to hold 
the affair permanently on the Mon- 
day of the Grand Ole Opry Birthday 
and Disk Jockey Convention week, 
Eddie Miller, NS A president, said. 
“By holding our banquet on the Mon- 
day of convention week, we will not 
conflict with other awards banquets 
such as those of the three per- 
formance societies that writers would

^ Picks oi the Week 


3 


CONWAY TWITTY (MGM 14205) 

What Am I Living For (2:34) (Progressive &Tideland Music, BMI — -Jay, Harris) 
Pulled from Twitty’s earlier works, this single has every chance of becom- 
ing another smash for the talented country artist. Done in the same fashion 
as "It’s Only Make Believe,” this Twitty tune could bring back lots of 
memories resulting in another giant record. Flip: 'Til Try” (2:13) (Marielle 
Music, BMI — Twitty, Nance) 


ARLENE HARDEN (Columbia 45287) 

True Love Is Greater Than Friendship (3:02) (Cedarwood, BMI — C. Perkins) 
Taken from the motion picture, "Little Fauss And Big Halsy,” this Carl 
Perkins ballad is given a brilliant performance by Arlene in her next hit 
single effort. Flip: (No Information Available) 


CONNIE EATON (Chart 5110) 

Sing A Happy Song (2:23) (Blue Creek Music, BMI— -C. Williams, B. Graham) 
Connie’s happy song is bound to grow happier and happier as her most 
recent single attempt rockets to the top of the country charts. Flip: "Glad 
To Be Your Woman” (2:52) (Sue Mirl Music, ASCAP— L. Phillips) 


DAVE PEEL (Chart 5109) 

(You've Got To) Move Two Mountains (2:12) (Jobete Music, BMI — B. Gordy 
Jr.) 

Abandoning the staff of country writers for this latest effort, Dave turns 
in a fine rendition of a Berry Gordy tune that has all the makings of a hit. 
Flip: "Willard Crabtree’s Running For Trustee” (2:58) (Yonah Music, BMI — 
D. Howard) 


THE HAGERS (Capitol 3012) 

I’m Miles Away (2:36) (Blue Book Music, BMI — R. McCoy) 

Nobody deserves a hit more than the Hagers. Their singles are highlighted 
by total freshness and an unmistakable harmony that has made the Hagers 
one of the most promising vocal duos around. "I’m Miles Away,” their new 
single release could do it for them. Flip: "Loony Caboose” (2:09) (Same 
Credits) 


NASHVILLE STRING BAND (RCA 74-0410) 

Strollin' (2:09) (Face Music, BMI — H. Haynes) 

If this record were three hours long, it wouldn’t be long enough! The 
Nashville String Band have come up with a beautifully melodic tune that 
will become a classic instrumental. Pulled as a single from the "Identified” 
album, this track should be reaching the charts in no time at all. Flip: "Red 
Wing” (2:24) (Athens Music, BMI — arr. Percy Winrich) 


BILLY EDD WHEELER (RCA 47-9943) 

Woman’s Talkin’ Liberation Blues (2:28) (UA Music, ASCAP — ^Wheeler) 

If you think this record is just another Woman’s Lib song, you’re mis- 
taken. Billy Edd Wheeler delivers an unusual tale of woman’s fight for 
freedom. Plenty of laughs and tears all contained in the 2:28 single. A 
good record overall. Flip: "Little Lucy” (2:50) (Same Credits) 

SEASONAL SINGLES: 

JERRY LEE LEWIS (Mercury 73155) 

I Can’t Have A Merry Christmas, Mary, (Without You) (2:36) (DeCapo Music, 
BMI — B. Lancaster) 

Here’s a fine Christmas offering from Jerry marked by his very own 
unique style. Done with much feeling, record could be a seasonal giant. 
Flip: "In Loving Memories” (3:14) (DeCapo Music, BMI — C. Harrelson, L. G. 
Lewis) 


BUDDY LANDON (Newhall 699) 

The Loneliest Day Of The Year (2:52) (Capitol Music, ASCAP — B. Landon) 
Soft trickling piano highlights this lovely Christmas ballad that has all the 
feeling of the season. Flip: "King Of Kings” (2:48) (Central Songs, BMI — B. 
Landon, E. Raven) 


JUANITA MILLER (NRS 558) 

Everyday Is Like Christmas (2:37) (House Of David, BMI — E. Lay, J. Miller) 
Here's a fine self penned Christmas tune that you’ll be playing time and 
time again. It's soft and refreshing, and captures all the feeling of the sea- 
son. A good first release from Juanita. Flip: "Let It Snow, Let It Snow” (2:04) 
I (No Credits Available)

Country IP Reviews 



IN LOVING MEMORIES — Jerry Lee Lewis — 
Mercury — SR 61318 

All his life, Jerry Lee Lewis has been singing 
gospel songs. Coming from a devoutly religious 
family, Jerry was brought up singing his very 
own brand of gospel which was a combination 
of rock 'n roll, blues and gospel all rolled into 
one. The songs contained on this album are 
among Jerry’s favorites, the one’s he’s been 
singing all his life. They are honest perform- 
ances, sincere and emotional. Though all the 
selections on the LP are interesting, pay spe- 
cial attention to “In Loving Memories,” “I 
Know That Jesus Will Be There,” and "My 
God’s Not Dead.” 



100 CHILDREN— Tom T. Hall— Mercury— SR 
61307 

When it comes to writing songs, very few 
have written as many or as fine a collection 
as Tom T. Hall. Tom has written songs for 
almost every important country artist, and this 
new album of his contains 11 original com- 
positions including his most recent single ef- 
fort, "100 Children.” Also included in the LP 
are "I Want To See The Parade,” "Mama Bake 
A Pie (Daddy Kill A Chicken),” "I Hope It 
Rains At My Funeral,” "Old Enough To Want 
To (Fool Enough To Try),” and a handful of 
other memorable tunes that have made Tom 
T. Hall a legend in his own time. 


BED OF ROSES — Statler Brothers — Mercury — 
SR 61317 

The Statler Brothers are probably the most 
successful country group around. In all the 
years that they’ve been together, they never 
made a record that was anything less than 
great! Listen carefully to their latest single 
“Bed Of Roses” which is included in this new 
package. It’s absolutely beautiful, as are “The 
Junkie’s Prayer,” “We,” “This Part Of The 
World,” “Tomorrow Never Comes,” and the re- 
maining six tracks.

the government’s three volume Mass

Trade and Industry has supported for 
several years the participation of the 
British music industry at MIDEM. 
For the 1971 meet, the agency is 
providing $65,000. Seemingly aware 
of the importance of MIDEM to their 
music fields, two more countries, Italy 
and Canada, are providing funds. The 
Italia Musica — center for promoting 
Italian music — will grant a total sub- 
sidy of 7 million lire to all participat- 
ing Italian firms, participation from 
which represents a 40% increase over

CHEAT BRITAIN -THE YEAR IN REVIEW 


The past year has seen a keen in- 
crease in the competitive nature of 
the disk market, and several major 
upheavals and realignments as a di- 
rect result. Top level, top grade ex- 
ecutive talent in this field is still at a 
premium, and rustling is an ever- 
present hazard. 

Exec Changes 

Fred Marks from Australia took 
over the Philips Records helm from 
Leslie Gould, who now heads up the 
Famous disk and publishing oper- 
ation here with a supervisory brief 
over Europe. John Fruin abruptly 
exited from EMI Records to become 
chief of Polydor in place of Roland 
Rennie, who is now managing direc- 
tor of the new Deutsche Grammo- 
phon (London) company. Bernard 
Ness left the RCA record division top 
seat to join Plessey, and was succeed- 
ed by Ken Glancy, the CBS headman, 
who has since captured his former 
CBS lieutenant Olav Wyper from 
Philips. EMI Records managing di- 
rector Ken East returned to his na- 
tive Australia to take over the Emi 
operation there, and was succeeded 
by Philip Brodie. 

Martin Davis became managing di- 
rector of Liberty-UA, and Bell 
opened its European headquarters in 
London initially under ex-EMI man 
Trevor Churchill, who was later suc- 
ceeded by Dick Leahy, a former Philips 
staffman. Geoffrey Everitt left the 
London hlem of Radio Luxembourg 
after over twenty years to run the 
new MAM Records offshoot of the 
Tom Jones-Engelbert Humperdinck- 
Gordon Mills MAM empire, and the 
vacant RL chair has been filled by 
music publisher Alan Keen, himself a 
previous “pirate” Radio London 
man. MCA Records chief Brian Brol- 
ly has returned to the TV and movie 
section of MCA, and the truncated 
MCA disk operation is now headed 
by former CBS A&R head Derek Ev- 
erett. 


All these comings and goings un- 
derline the toughness of the record 
market today and its problems. RCA 
opened its multi-million pound, fully 
automated pressing plant in County 
Durham as the final impressive stage 
of its complete independence, but has 
still only a modest share of the chart 
action in comparison with its massive 
commitment. MCA has reverted from 
independence to its former licensing 
deal with Decca, and its own office is 
now a talent-seeking agency and a 
supplement on occasion for Decca’s 
promotional efforts in behalf of MCA 
product. Philips and Polydor set up 
their joint Phonodisc distribution op- 
eration, and suffered some sapping 
blows beneath their collective sales 
belt when the computer seized up and 
the whole system almost fell down. 

The prices of LPs and singles rose 
again during the year, but generally 
the Board of Trade figures have 
shown a buoyant upward sales trend 
with even singles showing signs of 
rallying. But economic pressures are 
leaning heavily on the smaller re- 
tailer, especially those who coasted 
along on the sunny crest of the boom 
years, as though there was no rainy 
tomorrow, and the main pattern of 
retailing this decade seems to be 
veering towards the chains and a 
handful of enterprising individual- 
ists. 

Budget LP Boom 

LPs are the market sales leaders 
and budget or low-price albums are 
largely the reason why. Wamer- 
Reprise joined the budget battalions 
with its Valient line, and A&M start- 
ed its Mayfair series while Philips set 
up an independent company under 
Dave Allwood to specialize wholly in 
budget product. Nobody is knocking 
the budget boom, especially when 
just about everybody is into that 
area themselves, but some dubious 
looks are being cast at its effect on 
full-price LP sales, and there is 


speculation about how long the spree 
can be maintained on mostly reissue 
material. For example, will Mrs. 
Jones rush along the High Street in 
a few years’ time eagerly looking for 
budget reissues of the abundance of 
progressive repertoire now appearing 
at full price or will she still prefer 
the Sinatras, Coles Martins and oth- 
ers of that ilk in umpteenth permuta- 
tions of their best recorded work ? 

1970 has seen a lot of activity in 
the tape field in line with confident 
predictions that this decade will wit- 
ness a sales explosion for cassettes 
and cartridges. But movement on 
hardware sales remains slow, and 
there are discontented rumblings 
from the retail sector to the effect 
that if margins are not increased for 
the benefit of the trade, the sales 
explosion might be nothing more 
than a damp squib. 

1971 and what it holds for the en- 
tertainment industry constitutes one 
large and mysterious enigma, but it’s 
for sure that here will be as many 
tears as cheers in the various areas. 
What there certainly won’t be is an- 
other open-air pop festival happening 
on the disastrous Isle of Wight scale. 
Now for a look at the year’s events, 
month by month, as they happened.

Where the action is. 


Tucked away in a quiet corner of Manchester Square, 
just off Oxford Street in London, stands EMI House : 
home of EMI and nerve-centre of its many worldwide activities 
in the fields of entertainment and technology. 

Records not least. EMI both make them — to the tune of 
200 million annually (one fifth of total world sales)— and 
break them — by keeping ahead of the rest of the industry in 
resources, research, finance and international know-how. 
EMI is where the action is. Worldwide.

And that’s no exaggeration. CBS International 
has subsidiary operations in 24 eountries, 
world-wide. And new aequisitions are being 
made each year. 

Buttlie point isn’t size alone. It’s the ability 
to coordinate a complex project, without 
having to rely on distant contractors or 
scattered licensees. What it comes down to is 


a self-supporting network: from recording, 
to manufacturing, to publishing, to packaging, 
to distribution, to promotion and sales. 

In short, when you do business with CBS, 
you’re with a company that circles the globe. 
So when you need something at the right 
time in the right place, you won’t be left 
going around in circles. 



CBS International. 

One company that’s many, many companies that are one. 

CBS International/ 51 West 52nd Street^ New York, N.Y. 10019/(212) 765-4321.

LED ZEPPELIN 

Led Zeppelin was formed in 1968 by 
Jimmy Page then with The Yard- 
birds, when he teamed up with John 
Paul Jones, John Bonham and Robert 
Plant. They have featured regularly 
in both British and American album 
charts since that date, and were re- 
cently presented with 2 Gold Disks 
for American and British album

SHIRLEY BASSEY 

Bom in Tiger Bay, Cardiff, Shirley 
Bassey started her singing career at 
the age of 16 and a string of suc- 
cesses followed. She is probably best 
remembered for her recording of the 
title song from the James Bond film 
“Goldfinger,” which is still very 
prominent in her cabaret act. Now 
married to Italian Sergio Navak, who 
is also her personal manager, Shirley 
has worked extensively abroad in- 
cluding America, Australia, Italy, 
Scandinavia and France. 

Record Company: United Artists 
Agent: Tony Lewis, 13/14, Golden

MARY HOPKIN 

Discovered on an amateur talent pro- 
gramme Welsh born Mary Hopkin 
was fortunate enough to have Beatle 
Paul McCartney produce her first 
disk “Those Were The Days.” Apart 
from the Beatle aura the recording 
was good, and it soon became a best 
seller around the world. She rep- 
resented Britain in the 1970 Eurovi- 
sion Song Contest just being beaten 
by Ireland’s Dana. Nevertheless, 
“Knock, Knock Who’s There” went 
on to become an international suc- 
cess. She has her own BBC TV series 
and appeared in this year’s Royal 
Variety Show.

CHRISTIE 

Jeff Christie, better known as Chris- 
tie, hit the big time this year with 
“Yellow River” which became a No. 1 
hit in more than 20 countries. It was 
a demonstration record he made of 
“Yellow River” and offered to The 
Tremeloes which resulted in CBS sig- 
ning him as an artiste with group 
members Vic Elmes and Mike Blak- 
ely.

THE ROLLING STONES 

Mick dagger, Charlie Watts, Keith 
Richard, Brian Jones and Bill Wyman 
formed the Rolling Stones in 1963, 
and it was Andrew Loog Oldham 
who acted as manager and general 
all round help to the unknown 
group. Their first record release “I 
Wanna Be Your Man” on Decca es- 
tablished them in show business. In 
June 1969 Brian Jones left the group 
and tragically died a few months 
later. Mick Taylor, lead guitarist 
with the John May all group, replaced 
Jones. Their disk sales are still 
phenomenal and their tours sro.

MOODY BLUES 

The Moody Blues first came together 
in 1967 when Tony Clarke (Now 
known as the 6th Moody) produced 
their first single. It was, however, 
with albums that they made their 
mark on the music scene, albums such 
as “Days of Future Post,” “In Search 
Of The Lost Chord,” “On The Thresh- 
old Of A Dream” and “To Our 
Childrens Children’s Children” which 
was the first release on their own 
Threshold label. The Moodies vonsist 
of Justin Hajrward, Mike Pinder, Ray 
Thomas, John Lodge and Graeme 
Edge.

THE MARMALADE 

The Marmalade worked together 
some time before their version of The 
Beatles “Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da” hit the 
charts with a resounding bang which 
ricocheted around the world and es- 
tablished them on the record scene. 
Since then they have produced con- 
sistently good records and have be- 
come one of the most polished and 
professional acts in the business. The 
Marmalade comprise Pat Fairley, 
Alan Whitehead, Graham Knight, 
Junior Campbell and Dean Ford.

FLEETWOOD MAC 

Fleetwood Mac (alias Peter Green, 
Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, John 
McVie and Mick Fleetwood domi- 
nated the British charts for nearly a 
year with two albums before the re- 
lease of their first single in Novem- 
ber 1968. When they first began they 
played predominately blues, but now 
their music is a mixture of influ- 
ences. Already established in Britain 
it was the single “Albatross” which 
gave them international recognition, 
and they are still achieving chart 
status in world charts today.

TOM JONES 

What more can be said about Tom 
Jones — Superstar. Everybody must ; 
know the background of the 30 year | 
old Welshman who in six years has 
become famous throughout the world 
and named America’s Entertainer of 
the Year (1970). Discovered by man- 
ager Gordon Mills it was “It’s Not i 
Unusual,” in 1965 which placed him * 
at the top of the charts since when ! 
his records have sold more than one ! 
hundred million units around the 
world. 

Record Company: Decca 

Agent: A.M.A. Ltd. 24/25, New 
Bond Street, London W.l 


ENGLEBERT HUMPERDINCK 

Engelbert Humperdinck first scored 
his first hit record in 1968; made his 
first big impression on American TV 
audiences in 1968; shattered U. S. 
box office records in 1969 and broke 
his own records again in 1970. It was 
“Release Me” (with sales of more 
than five million copies around the 
world) which set Humperdinck on the 
road to fame, but it was overnight 
success for prior to his name change 
he had been in show business, singing 
under various names, for 12 years. 

Record Company: Decca 

Agent: Colin Berlin/ A.M.A., 24/25,

HOLLIES 

The Hollies have been correctly de- 
scribed as the most consistent group 
on the pop scene because from their 
first release “Ain’t That Just Like 
Me” in 1963, they have maintained an 
unbroken line of chart successes. 
Many changes have occurred within 
the group which now consists of Al- 
len Clarke, Tony Hicks, Bobby Elli- 
ott, Bemie Calvert and Terry Sylves- 
ter, and the Hollies’ sound has echoed 
around the world for seven years 
firmly establishing them in the ranks 
of show business.

FREE 

The Free describe themselves as free 
of categories, free of labels, free of 
neat pigeonholes. They do have na- 
mes however Paul Rodgers, Paul 
Kossoff, Andy Fraser and Simon 
Kirke. They met up early in 1968 and 
played in clubs before winning a res- 
idency at London’s Marquee Club. In 
1969 they were picked to accompany 
The Blind Faith tour of America and 
proved they were capable of holding 
the attention of an audience impa- 
tient to hear the main attraction. 
Since the Free have become interna- 
tionally established via their albums.

THE KINKS 

The Kinks were formed in 1964 and it 
was “You Really Got Me” which put 
them on the road to success. They hit 
the charts regularly throughout 
1964, 1965, 1966 and 1967, then Dave 
Davies made a solo recording and 
rumors were rife of the splitting up 
of the group. However, with several 
solo hit disks behind him, he is still 
with the Kinks. After a gap of some 
two years without a chart entry, the 
Kinks returned in July 1970 with a 
No. 1 smash “Lola.” Ray Davies has 
been responsible for all their materi- 
al from the beginning and the master 
mind behind the production of their 
records and stage presentation. The 
Kinks are: Ray and Dave davies, 
Mick Avory and John Dalton.

40 No. 1 hits in his native Jamaica 
and it was his “Israelites” single 
which gave him a No. 1 in Great 
Britain and established him around 
the world. His recording policy is to 
record the backing track in Jamaica 
and add the finishing touches in Bri- 
tain. Ember Records, who distribute 
his disks around the world except in

TREMELOES 

Formerly known as a backing group 
for Brian Poole, The Tremeloes came 
into their own in 1966 when they 
I stormed the charts with that hand- 
j clapping, happy sound of “Here 
I Comes My Baby,” and since then the 
Tremeloes’ sound has continued to 
echo around the world with hit fol- 
lowing hit. During their career the 
j group have toured the world exten- 
sively and chalked up many No. Is as 
I well as collecting a Gold Disk for 
“Silence Is Golden” in 1966. The 
j Tremeloes now comprised of Alan 
Blakley, Ricky West, Dave Munden 
I and ‘Chip’ Hawkes are just as popu- 
lar today.

ROGER WHITAKER 

Born in Noirobi in 1936 Roger Whit- 
j taker’s musical ability showed itself at 
an early age when he sang in school 
! choirs. However, it was a University 
I ‘rag’ stunt making cheap plastic disks 
which brought him to the attention 
of a record company executive and so 
i another recording career was 

I launched. After several years of mod- 
! erate success, both in Britain and on 
the continent, it was his recording of 
) “Leaving (Durham Town)” which 
brought him to the attention of rec- 
ord buyers en masse.

PICKETTYWITCH 

It all began for Pickettywitch with 
an ad in a musical paper. “Required, 
it said, young musicians, singers and 
dancers to form pop group. Must be 
willing, musical and enthusiastic.” 
And so Pickettywitch were bom 
helped along by a Tony Maccaulay — 

, John McLeod song “That Same Old 
Feeling” which became an interna- 
tional hit. The six willing, musical 
and enthusiastic people who make up 
Pickettywitch are Chris Warren, Bob 
Brittain, Keith Hall, Brian Stuart, 
Peter Hawkins and Polly Brown.

CLIFF RICHARD 

The phenomenal success story of 
Cliff Richard is a showbusiness saga 
that can have few parallels. From his 
start in the pop recording world in 
1958, Cliff has progressed to become 
an entertainer, film star and stage 
actor. During his career he has been 
awarded five Gold Disks, 21 Silver 
Disks and a special silver award for 
sales over 250,000 albums. He has 
topped the New Musical Express pop 
polls in one or more categories every 
year since 1958. This year he cel- 
ebrated his 50th single release 
“Goodbye Sam Hello Samantha” and 
continued the unbroken line of chart 
success that has given him chart pla- 
cings for each of the 50 singles he 
has made.

mous with “Aqueles Tempos”, a ver- 
sion of “Those Were The Days”, that

try, has recently signed a contract 
with “Discos Continental.” A tour 
with Joelma is programmed all 
through Latin America starting in

ducer of Chantecler, informs the next 
launchings: three singles that soon 
will be in the Brazilian charts: “Air- 
port Love Theme” — Vincent Bell,

“Easy To Be Free” by Rick Nelson, 

The most important LP’s are: The 
4th LP of Segovia playing Bach; a 
catalogue LP of the famous s-uitar 
player, “Jealous Kind Of Fella” — 
Gaidar Green and a sure hit “Touch- 
ing You And Touching Me” by Neil 
Diamond, whose single “Soolaimon”,

in the world, is also a composer — 
and many of his songs cut, one of 
them by Simonal (Gosto Tanto De 
Voce), another by Pele himself to- 
gether with Elis Regina (Xexamao E 
Perdao Nao Tern). These two songs 
i have been very successful in Mexico 
and Polyphon is interested in their 
publishing rights. 

Abilio Manoel is back from his 
stay in Mexico where he recorded 
his hit Pena Verde (Pluma Verde) 
for Mexican Capitol. He won the 
Universitary Fest in Chile with the

success.

tions and conduction of Alfred New- 
man, which Chantecler-MCA is de- 
livering in the market in Sao Paulo,

(Philips) — a live recording. Following 
this, the same diskery, also with the 
Philips label, put into the market an 
LP with 13 of the 40 competing songs 
of the International Phase. 

Fermata diskery has also launched 
an LP with several Fest songs of the

RCA has put forth Martinho da

“Love Is All” sung by Malcolm Rob- 
ots in the Rio Song Fest (3rd place) 
is_ the absolute hit parade leader in 
Sao Paulo, after an extremely fast 
rise._ This is a Fermata launching, 
published by RCA. Philips showed its 
new catalog which included the first 


LP by their new artist, Chico Buarque 
de Holanda who will be sending com- 
positions from Italy. 

The heads of Continental Records,

FRANCE— 1970 IN REVIEW 




As a whole it has been a fairly pre- 
dictable year in France. It started in 
some ways with last year’s MIDEM 
and it will more as less end with the 
same meeting in Cannes. The in- 
between period has seen the same 
number of predictable hits and just 
about the same number of unpredic- 
table hits as the years before. News 
names on the French scene include: 
Marc Hamilton a Canadian singer 
who scored a big hit with: “Comme 
J|ai Toujours Envie d’Aimer.” This 
hit was produced and co-published by 
Claude (jarrere, one of the top inde- 
pendent producer of the French in- 
dustry. The other publisher of this 
song was Alain Boublil (Les Editions 
Vogue) who also produced one of the 
biggest song of the year and certain- 
ly the top song as far as sales are 
concerned: “Adieu Jolie Candy” by 
Jean Francois Michael, an incredible 
international smash hit which sold in 
France, Italy, Japan, South America, 
Germany, Canada. The song was co- 
produced by Frank Pourcel . . .Another 
newcomer on the French scene was 
Mike Brant, an Israelian who enjoyed 
a surprise hit with “Laisse Moi 
T’Aimer.” This new French idol was 
also produced by a team of indepen- 
dant producers-publishers Gerard 
Toumier and author Jean Renard. 
Still among new sensation there was 
Michel Sardou whose appearance on 
the stage of the Olympia gave him an 
incredible success announced by two 
previous hits: “Les Bals Populaires” 
et “Mourir De Plaisir” and followed 
by another one: “J’Habite En 

France.” 

There was also Michel Delpech and 
“Wight Is Wight,” not a newcomer 
hut yet a very young singer who had 
a no. 1 song for several weeks. Of 
course the confirmed names improved 
their usual success with such top 
names as Polnareff, Johnny Hallyday, 
Joe Dassin, Franqoise Hardy, Adamo, 
enjoying hits after hits ... In between 
the newcomers and the confirmed na- 
mes there was Gille Marchal and 
Julien Clerc who scored heavily and 
improved their positions as future 
number one French singers. 

Danyel Gerard ex-“first French 
rocker” made a surprising come-back 
with a tremendously good album re- 
leased last month (November). But 
the biggest influence on the market 
was the arrival of Pop Music as a 
style. Whereas before French singers 
used to cover nearly each and every 
hits now original American and En- 
glish hits make it very big over here. 
Following this sudden interest for 
Pop music, a magazine was bom and 
also producers tried to copy the 
American sound with either imported 
artists living and recording in France 


or simply by having French artists or 
groups sing in English. Such was the 
case of: Aphrodite’s Child, Jupiter 
Sunset, Zoo, Alice, Majority One, Ti- 
tanic, Triangle, Variations, Aleph and 
so on and so on . . . All of them 
trying to compete for (at last) inter- 
national recognition. But although 
French teenagers seem to care very 
much about these groups it seems 
that they are still buying the original 
sound. 

And so 1970 witnessed the incredi- 
ble success of Mungo Jerry with over 
a million copies sold in several 
month. Cat Stevens was rediscovered 
with “Lady D’Arbanville,” Miguel 
Rios, the awkward Spanish singer, 
scored with “A Song Of Joy” and 
with the help of Beethoven. Freddie 
And The Dreamers also enjoyed a 
fair success with “Susan’s Tuba” and 
then there were the usual heavy hits 
such as Pink Floyd, John Lennon, 
Black Sabbath, Deep Purple . . . Most 
of the big names came over to Paris 
generally on the stage of the Olym- 
pia for Musicoramas produced by 
Europe no. 1. The only exception 
being Blood Sweat And Tears and 
Feliciano who came over for R.T.L. 
(the other independent Radio Sta- 
tion). Another event made the front 
pages of nearly all the trade and fans 
and general public newspaper: it was 
the total ban on all pop music fes- 
tival. Yet the 4 festivals planned hap- 
pened as announced even though they 
were forbidden. Which goes to show 
that a ban always help promote ev- 
erything. On the record companies 
front, it was also the usual story: 
Philips kept doing very good busi- 
ness with artists like Hallyday, 
Sheila, Rika Zarai, Michel Sardou, 
Barbara . . . 

Pathe Marconk kept flooding the 
market with generally excellent for- 
eign materials but also with^ big 
French sellers like Gilbert Becaud 
(incidentally Becaud played a fort- 
night at the Olympia and broke all 
the records of this famous music 
hall. Never in the history of the Ol- 
ympia had so many people had come 
to watch an artist). Julien Clerc,

the Ode 70 and A & M labels . . . 
Decca, which cut its whole promotion 
department, suffered ever since be- 
cause of a lack of promotion proba- 
bly felt also at the record retailers 
level. However, Decca still re-issued 
several big hits from the past which 
was an intelligent move which cer- 
tainly paid off. Disc’AZ was first of 
all shattered by the death of Lucien 
Morisse its manager who had lately 
been giving a new blood to his com- 
pany and made it one of the top 
independent French company. Disc’ 
AZ scored hit after hit with a regu- 
larity which can only be described as 
stupendous. On the local side, it has 
Michel Polnareff and Gilles Marchall 
doing both extremely well and on the 
international side they released an 
impressive number of big sellers. Po- 
lydor scored late with a surprise hit 
called “Ratata” by Rotation and 
“Montego Bay” by Bobby Bloom. 
“Ratata” looked as if it was going to 
be one of the biggest sellers of the 
year for Polydor. Polydor signed Mi- 
kis Theodorakis, who made a record 
with Georges Moustaki, still one of 
the most important sellers in France. 
Sonopresse started to make people 
talk by moving from a plain distribu- 


tion organization to a full time record 
company. Frangoise Hardy, Pierre 
Perret and Dalida among others de- 
cided to sign with this newly found 
record company which seems to be 
going to play a ve:^ important part 
in the record business during the 
coming year. Musidisc Europe kept 
on scoring heavyly with Creedence 
Clearwater Revival while keeping its 
policy of cheap priced series. Series 
which meant big business for this | 
young and successful firm. Lastly ' 
two companies made a lot of noise by 
surrounding themselves with rumours j 
about folding up and failure. Fes- I 
tival and Barclay. Though nothing | 
has been confirmed, there were in- 
creasingly frequent rumors about j 
their future. Yet, Festival kept re- 
leasing Marie L^oret’s tracks and 
selling them and Barclay enjoyed 
several very big hits with people 
like: David Alexandre Winter, Jean 
Christian Michel and Michel Delpech. i 
From the outside it seemed that both 
companies and particularly Barclay 
had been doing very well indeed. As 
for CBS, nothing could have been 
better since this company was right 
in the middle of the pop music revo- | 
lution from Blood Sweat and Tears to | 
Bob Dylan as continuous string of 
hits, backed up on the French side, by 
the amazing continuous success of 
Joe Dassin.

day. This could be Canada’s year for 
music and records. There is already 
indications that the ruling has had 
its effect on the amount of produc- 
tion and international success of pro- 
duction and inteimational success of 
produced in Canada recordings. The 
Canadian government is taking a hard 
line on protecting Canada’s right to 
be a sovereign nation, culturally. They 
wish Canada to adopt an identity of 
their own. Further legislation is em- 
inent since it has ben proven that 
this is the only remedy. In 1970, we 
saw the first steps.

SPAIN-THE YEAR IN REVIEW 


The 1970 album explosion: 

The most outstanding development 
of 1970 was, without any possible 
doubt, the L.P. market explosion. Till 
a couple of years ago, pop-music was 
strictly for singles. Only operas, 
“Zarzuelas,” hymns, instrumental, 
classical and litinoamerican music 
had an L.P. market, and not a very 
brilliant one: to sell 5,000 copies, 
maybe after years in the shops, was 
still a hit, even if pop-singles had 
already reached the 200,000 copies 
mark. 

The first chapter of this quiet revo- 
lution (at that stage) came with the 
release in 1969 of the album “Dedica- 
do a Antonio Machado, poeta,” by 
Joan Manuel Serrat (NovolaL The 
usual sales “roof” for a L.P. was 
reached and surpassed very easily, 
and after that every other “roof” 
which could have been thought of 
was also surmounted. Weeks and 
weeks elapsed, with Serrat staying 
steadily on top. Sales of “Dedicado a 
Antonio Machado, poeta,” only in 
Spain, must be now around the 100,- 
000 copies, a mark which becomes 
more so if we have in mind the fact 
that the Serrat’s L.P. belong to the 
most expensive category in the mar- 
ket. 

After this, everything was set for 
the revolution’s second chapter, 
which came, as stated above, when 
Spanish CBS started its operation 
here. Santana topped the album 
charts only five weeks after release, 
while Chicago took just three to 
reach the second place. Then came 
Simon & Garfunkel, who proved the 
most successful of the lot: “Bridge 
Over Troubled Water” has been top- 
ping the charts for 25 weeks, “El 
Condor Pasa” is number 1 in the 
singles charts, “Sounds Of Silence” 
went like an arrow to the second 
position of the album lists; and “Fill 
Your Head With Rock,” Bob Dylan, 
“Blood, Sweat and Tears,” all of 
them climbed to the L.P. super-sales. 

The big firms with strong foreign 
catalogs, like Hispavox, accepted at 
once the challenge, and then the dou- 
ble-album war began: Elvis Presley 
and Feliciano were released by RCA; 
Chicago, Bob Dylan and the Everly 
Brothers by CBS, while Fonogram 
has started a big classical venture: to 
release the complete works of 
Beethoven (79 L.P.s) originally 
launched by its licensor Deutsche 
Grammophon Gesellschaft. 

The single’s age 

So a new market trend has been 
established, and there are signs that 
the pop-album is here to stay. 
Hispavox, CBS, Columbia, RCA, Fon- 
ogram and Odeon are all well en- 
dowed to stand the race, but what 
about the smaller firms with a tiny 
domestic catalog and no foreign la- 
bels to speak of ? 

The case of Zafiro, which has been 
a pioneer in many things, including 
the album revolution, is archetypical. 
It started its operation 12 years ago 
with a very weak traditional catalog: 
“Zarzuela,” Latinoamerican and or- 
chestral music, the Zafiro label. Six 
years ago, when Spanish pop-music 
was still a toddler, the Novola label 
was created and hits began to pour, 
first with Los Brincos, then with 
Juan & Junior, Massiel . . . The most 
dramatic step onward was given 
by Los Brincos, forerunners of 
the singles revolution, who — with 
“Flamenco,” “Borracho,” “Sola,” 
“Mejor,” etc. - — raised sales from tlie 
then usual 10,000 copies — hit to the 
100,000 ones; increased later on to 
the 200,000 copies mark, a phenom- 
enon who allowed Zafiro to rule 
the roost in many things: it intro- 
duced the pop single and the pop 
E.P. withered soon away, and it was 
wen daring enough to adopt the full- 
color cover for singles, an example 
followed afterwards by everybody 
else. Above all, it set a very clever 
commercial policy based on the sin- 
gles boom, and has been following it 
successfully for four years. Main 
points of this policy were: a) very 


few releases at the Novola front; b) 
only a handful of selected artists in 
the Novola label; c) expensive re- 
cordings of the “happy few” abroad, 
mainly in London; d) strong promo- 
tion on their product. The general 
expenses incurred by a firm with a 
big staff and many “indifferent” re- 
leases were so spared, and the invest- 
ment made on any of the “chosen” 
was quickly recovered . . . with some 
handsome profits thrown in the deal. 
And so Zafiro has lived in wealth and 
mirth for the last few years. 

But that was the singles’ age. Are 
these firms endowed to cope with the 
album challenge? Not in principle, as 
the only effective retaliatory weapon 
lies within a big catalog, inexistent 
in these cases. So how are they react- 
ing? And, will they keep well and 
healthy? Only the new year can 
bring a specific answer to the second 
question. As to the first, there are 
different replies: Zafiro, for instance 
which has renounced to the expensive 
recordings abroad from last spring 
on, and has been this year strangely 
absent from the singles’ charts — is 
now very keen on establishing a new 
low-pric^ budget-line (99 pts. = $1.40) 
for an album), whose future would 
depends naturally of the kind of mate- 
rial available to feed it. If that mate- 
rial is poor, nothing at all will hap- 
pen. If, by some miracle, it is bril- 
liant, it could prove dangerous to the 
overall industry. Anglosaxon markets 
have stood valiantly this type of 
challenge, but some Latinoamerican 
ones (Venezuela, for instance) had a 
general falling down of prices as a 
result. By the way, it is also nimored 
that Spanish TV, which belongs to 
the State, has decided to release its 
own budget-line, also at 99 pts., and 
that could prove of course a bigger 
menace to the recording firms. 

As stated before, other small firms 
are reacting in a different way. 
“Movieplay” sets another good ex- 
ample, as it had to face, not only the 
album revolution and a general 
economic year far from bright, but 
also the deprivation from a rich and 
creamy milk-bottle: the financial sup- 
port of “mother” Movierecord, a 
felled-up giant. 

Movieplay-ruled by a pushing and 
young team under Manueal Sancho, 
with Guitart and Crespo as his mains- 
takes — has become very realistic 
indeed after the years of “wine and 
roses,” and relies completely now in 
independent producers in what re- 
gards its domestic artists, striving in 
this manner to have a very small but 
efficient staff and to keep expenses 
very low. On the other hand. Movie- 
play is participating in festivals more 
and more, with several successes in 
the year, such as the Benidorm First 
Prize shared by Donna Hightower 
with Joe-Luis. They are not ready to 
fight the album battle, but are fol- 
lowing at least, the best policy to 
survive with a limited catalog. 

Another small firm which does not 
seem to be throwing the towel is 
Ekipo, endowed with a pugnacious 
promo manager called Matio For- 
tuny. This firm is also putting the 
stress on the artistic promotion, and 
was daring enough to organize this 
fall a tour with virtually all its ar- 
tists, including Oliver from U. S. and 
John Walker from U.K. It is an easy 
guess to conclude that neither the 
artists nor the firm had any economic 
gain from this, but at least it has 
been shown they are still there. 

'The progressive sound 

Ekipo has been also concentrating 
on progressive sound, and that takes 
us to another development of the 
year: “In-a-gadda-da-vida,” by Iron 
Butterfly (Hispavox, and again an 
album!) was the movement foreward. 
Spanish young musicians reacted at 
once, and Pau Riba (Concentric), 
Evolution and Cerebrum (Ekipo), 
Smash (Fonogram), Maquina and 
Musica Dispersa Als 4 Vents), etc. 
made last spring some appearances 
and recorded several tunes with a 
good measure of success. The begin- 


ning of summer saw them at the peak 
of their popularity, but the heat plus 
the “coziness” of such catching tunes 
as “Un Rayo De Sol” provoked a 
seasonal sloth in the great mass of 
youths and they preferred this easier 
mood to the “intellectual music.” Fall 
has set the definite pattern: Progres- 
sive music attracts now a handful of 
real fans and a wider one of snobs, 
giving limited addition of available 
public. Ekipo, Concentric and Als 4 
Vents have made much to promote 
this kind of music, and Orio Regas is 
holding weekly progressive “fes- 
tivals” at the Iris ballroom in Bar- 
celona, but that is that. 

International prospects 

Internationally, it was a good year 
for Spain, above all with regards to 
Latin America, the most spectacular 
event being Miguel Rfos’ exploit in 
U. S., closely followed by Raphael’s 
success in all his American personal 
appearances as well as by Serrat hits 
in Argentina and other countries. 
Maria Dolores Pradera is still a big 
album seller in Colombia, Dyango re- 
mains a star in Argentina (not in 


Spain) and Karina, Los Payos, Mari- 
sol. Formula V, Victor Manuel, Peret 
and Mike Kennedy are doing rather 
well around the place. Julio Iglesias 
is starting a Latinoamerican tour, 
and will surely come back as an es- 
tablished singer there. 

Flashes on publishing 

On the publishing front, “Can- 
ciones Del Mundo” did very well. 
Apart from opening spick and span 
new _ offices (at Magallanes, 21, 
Madrid), Augusto Alguero Sr. has 
still grown in stature in what regards 
many international song contests 
(Athens, Rfo de Janero, Tokyo, 
Caracas, etc.), to such a point that 
his influence is paramount to decide 
which artist — or even journalist — 
must be invited and which one must 
stay. He who gets a “bad mark” from 
Augusto stays at home. 

Another publishing concern which 
did very well has been a former part- 
ner of Canciones del Mundo, “Edi- 
ciones Musicales Zafiro,” by itself 
and also through “Erika Musical, S. 
A.,” in which Juan Pardo has a very 
strong stake.

1970 In Review: 


HARDER TIMES IN 
A SOFTER MARKET 


Best and Worst of Times 

For the coin machine industry 1970 
was the best of times. For the coin 
machine industry 1970 was also the 
worst of times. 

It was a year in which all four 
major jukebox manufacturers un- 
veiled their new models at the trade’s 
showcase, the MOA Exposition in 
Chicago. The beauty, technical so- 
phistication and innovative designs of 
the new machines breathed renewed 
life through the industry, continuing 
to give tradesters products they 
would be proud to merchandise on 
the operator, distributor and manufac- 
turer level. 

It was a year in which the impact 
of the national economic recession 
was acutely felt by the coin machine 
industry. Collections dipped at loca- 
tions in m.nny areas, distributors en- 
countered financial distress and fac- 
tories wondered if the machines off 
the assembly lines could be absorbed 
by a fluctuating market. 

It was a year in which the amuse- 
ment games renaissance achieved 
new, exhilarating peaks as the realis- | 
tic audio visual machines made acces- 
sible to operators locations previous- 
ly unavailable. Games became not 
only functional money makers, but 
exciting, alluring conversation pieces 
as well. 

Two-for-a-quarter pricing became 
more and more accepted by the trade 
as location customers showed no ob- 
jections to the policy, apparently not 
considering the new pricing exorbi- 
tant or out of line with national 
trends. 

National economic trends were de- 
trimental to the trade, however, as 
tavern and restaurant patronage de- 
clined because the public suffered 
from the worst of both economic 
worlds — increased unemployment and j 
a skyrocketing cost of living. i 

The gathering of the trade in Chi- ' 
cago for the MOA Exposition 
presented the image of an industry 
seeking to herald its accomplishments 
and solve its problems in a deter- 
mined, unified manner. 

But that unity was disturbed when 
factories complained that operators 
were unresponsive to the problems of 
distributors and operators asserted 
that the prices of new equipment 
were so exorbitant as to threaten the 
survival of many operators. 

Entering the Leisure ’70s was a ; 
long step for the coin machine indus- I 
try to take and some of the steps 
were inhibited by serious problems, 
but the healthy strides facilitated by 
intelligent, energetic tradesters en- 
abled the industry to place its best 
foot forward in the new decade. 

Trends 

The major changes accomplished in 
phonograph manufacturing by the 
major factories during the past few 
decades was vividly highlighted at a 
showing by Marvin Rotb at his Roth 
Novelty Co. in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. 
where the Wurlitzer Model “412,” 
manufactured in 1936, was shown 
alongside the 1970 “Statesman.” 

The “412,” which played 12 records 
horizontally, provided a stunning 
glimpse of an industry, now fully 
mature, in its infancy. It was hard to 
believe that machines such as the 
“412” could be the forefathers of the 
streamlined phonos of today that 
offer as many as 200 selections. 

The games business took a long 
step toward maturity during the past 
year with the audio visual games 
that simulated motions and sounds, 
offering the player a sensual experi- 
ence as well as a final score. 

The trade showed remarkable fore- 
sight in developing and utilizing the 
new games, discarding the criticism 


of skeptics who maintained that the 
audio visual concept in games was 
impractical. Many said that operators 
would not pay the high prices that 
the new machines would command; 
others said that service problems 
caused by sophisticated circuitry 
would prove insurmountable, and 
others said the new games were 
strictly arcade pieces, limited in loca- 
tion versatility. 

But as the “Missiles,” “Speedways” 
and “Flying Carpets” started filling 
cash boxes with amazing consistency 
and various new locations began cla- 
moring for the new games, the skep- 
tics were ignored and the trade wel- 
comed with open arms a new era in 
the amusement games business. 

One of the most prominent 
features of big business in the United 
States is the long list of large corpo- 
rations and conglomerates that serve 
a particular market. The coin ma- 
chine industry continued toward a 
“big business” stature and it was 
perhaps inevitable that increased 
consolidation would affect the opera- 
tor level. 

The term national route was men- 
tioned more and more frequently as 
corporations like ARA and I.U.C. 
continued to buy up large local 
routes and establish strings of oper- 
ations that comprised routes truly 
national in scope. 

Operators became more responsive 
to promotional ideas for locations 
during the past year as evidenced by 
the slew of eight-ball tournaments 
conducted at taverns throughout the 
nation. These tournaments, most of 
j them sponsored by U.S. Billiards 
I helped increase interest in billiards 
competition at locations and provided 
an additional avenue of social 
recreation for people in small commu- 
nities and large cities all over the 
country. 

Music operators became more con- 
scious during 1970 of planned record 
programming techniques. Many oper- 
ators began to utilize the services of 
professional record programmers, 
who helped to program jukeboxes 
with selections most appropriate to 
specific locations. 

During the past year there was a 
revived effort to provide operators 
with records produced exclusively for 
jukebox programs. The marketing 
effort was noteworthy as significant 
marketing inroads were made in ar- 
eas that proved predominantly unre- 
sponsive in the past. The Little L. P., 
which met with dubious success in 
previous years, made a stunning 
recovery through the intelligent mar- 
keting of the product, intended exclu- 
sively for adult locations. 

The jukebox single, also an unsuc- 
cessful item in recent years, became a 
viable concept as “Red, Red Roses,” a 
tavern-oriented item by John Des- 
mond gained significant attention 
from one-stops and air play from 
radio stations throughout the coun- 
try. 

Problems 

All industries have problems that 
threaten to seriously reduce profit 
I margins and give businessmen end- 
less headaches, but the coin machine 
industry encountered more than its 
share of such problems during 1970. 
Almost everywhere the operator 
looked during the past year, some 
one was attempting to levy a tax on 
his machine, seize and destroy it or 
illegally rifle the machine’s cash box. 

The status of the controversial 
Cooyright Revision Bill and its 
Williams Amendment, detrimental to 
the trade, was not resolved during 
1970. The Bill, as passed by the 
House of Representatives in 1967, 
provides that operators pay an annu- 
al flat fee of $8.00 to compensate 


persons on the creative side of [ 
records played on jukeboxes. 

The Williams Amendment provided 
that the yearly fee be increased to 
$9.50 and that the fee be reviewed 
after five years. The Bill, which rep- 
resents a battle between the publish- 
ers’ performance rights societies 
(BMI, ASCAP and SESAC), re- 
mained in the Senate Judiciary Com- 
mittee during the past year and con- j 
sequently never reached the Senate 
floor for a vote. 

Nick Allen, MOA attorney, predict- 
ed at the MOA Convention in October 
that the Copyright Revision Bill and 
its Williams Amendment was likely 
to pass the Senate daring 1971. If the j 
Senate passes the Bill, it will return 
to the House where it must gain pas- 
sage in its revised form before it can 
become law. : 

The coin machine industry, behind ! 
the leadership of MOA, was success- 
ful in preventing the passage of the 
controversial Bill during 1970 but all 
indications are that the trade will 
have a difficult legislative battle on 
its hands during the upcoming year. 

The trade was also harassed on 
state and local levels, the most op- 
pressive legislation being proposed in 
Louisiana, where advocates of State 
Senate Bill 559 attempted to outlaw 
in-line pinball machines and make alt 
amusement machines susceptible to 
confiscation and destruction if used 
for gambling purposes. Despite the 
promise of Gov. McKeithen to push 
the Bill until the session’s end, the 
controversial proposal was killed on 
the final day of the state legislative 
session. 

That close call in Louisiana pro- i 
duced a silver lining of sorts as it 
prompted operators throughout the 
state to meet and lay the groundwork 
for a state association capable of 
preventing such legislative assaults 
in the future. i 

One of the most oppressive anti- 
coin machine measures introduced on 
a local level was a civic ordinance 
passed in Elizabeth, N. J., which 
stringently regulated the licensing 
and sale of amusement games. Only 
one game per 400 city residents was 
permitted on location and the 1960 
census was employed to compute the 
maximum number of machines per- 
mitted. During the controversy over 
the measure, the coin machine indus- 
trv was slandered by Elizabeth 
officials as a crime-controlled busi- 
ness that provided “street hangouts” 
for unruly teenagers. 

Millie McCarthy, president of the 
New York State Coin Machine Assn., 
made a determined effort during the 
past year to place New York amuse- 
ment operators under statewide juris- 
diction, thereby preventing the type 
of local problems which occurred in 
New Jersey. 

The Laverne Licensing Bill, snear- 
headed by Mrs. McCarthy, would li- 
cense operators in the state on a 
bi-annual basis. But as has been the 
Bill’s fate during the past several 
years, the Bill passed both state 
houses only to be vetoed by Gov. 
Rockfeller. 

The coin machine industry was 
not, however, without its legislative 
triumphs during 1970. Largely be- 
cause of the efforts of the Kansas 
Amusement and Music Assn., land- 
mark legislation was achieved in 
Kansas with the passage of State 
Bill 512 which stated that any break- 
in of a coin-operated machine would 
be regarded as a Class A misde- 
meanor. 

During the summer President Nix- 
on signed into law the Washington, 
D. C. Crime Measure, which included 
Section 203 that established a prison 
term up to three years and a fine up 
to $3,000 for breaking into coin- 
operated machines. 

Michigan and Delaware also fol-

For the first time ever, we’re introducing a line of juke- 
boxes. The Presidential Line. 

Why ore we doing it? To give you more than a one style, 
“take-it-or-leave-it” selling story. To make it easier for you 
to place our machines. To make money for you. 

And, in the long run, to give you a higher resale value. 

But looks aren’t everything new with our Presidential line. 
The sound is new, too. It’s the best sound in the industry. Our 


patented stereo round has been expanded, and we’ve 
added another speaker to our duct tuned sound chamber. 

Is a line of jukeboxes a better idea? Well, all we can say 
is that last year we introduced a line of changeable front 
panels. And we improved our market penetration. Nobody 
else did. 

So, get on the Rowe bandwagon. And let us hand you a 
line.

lowed suit, enacting laws which levy 
imprisonment and fines for breaking 
into coin machines. Encouraging 
headway was thus made during the 
past year toward alleviating the 
problem of vandalism, one of the in- 
dustry’s most severe and longest- 
lasting headaches. 

Hindering the trade in many of its 
legislative struggles was the “gang- 
ster stigma,” which was exploited by 
anti-coin interests in an attempt to 
prevent the trade’s interests from 
being fairly represented. 

Public ignorance of the coin ma- 
chine industry was painfully evident 
when CBS-TV’s “Sixty Minutes” pro- 
gram directly implied that all 
jukeboxes were controlled by orga- 
nized crime and that all operators 
were “partners of the Mafia.” A re- 
buttal by Cash Box was read on the 
air, but the initial damage caused by 
a network’s research sloppiness had 
been done. 

Shortly after the “Sixty Minutes” 
incident a refreshing ray of intelli- 
gent, accurate exposure was focused 
on the trade when The Washington 
Star Sunday supplement of March 1 
featured a story on “The Beloved 
Jukebox.” Written by Star staff writ- 
ers William Holland and Mike And- 
ers, the story discussed the history 
and operation of the jukebox busi- 
ness in an informative, entertaining 
manner while refuting several mis- 
conceptions often held about the in- 
dustry. 

Direct sales to locations was a 
problem that assaulted the industry’s 
pocketbook rather than its character. 
During 1970 an increasing number of 
fly-by-night firms entered direct com- 
petition with the operator for the 
location owner’s dollars. These firms 
deluged locations with brochures ex- 
tolling the advantages of direct ma- 
chine purchases. 


The direct sales problem, though 
not as yet considered damaging to 
the trade, has been studied by some 
' state associations. Among those who 
began to vigorously deal with the j 
problem were Coin Operated Indus- 
tries of Nebraska and the Illinois 
Coin Machine Operators Assn. 

Many operators complained during 
the past year that the major record 
companies were ignoring the needs of 
the trade. The record companies, they 
complained, were producing records 
unnecessarily long in length and were 
not producing enough records for adult 
locations. Action was taken at the 
November meeting of the Music Op- 
erators of Virginia, which wrote to 
the major labels, asking that records 
be limited to three minutes in length. 

Scores of problems confronted the 
coin machine industry during 1970 
and hopefully the experience gained 
by tradesters in coping with those 
problems will prove invaluable as the 
trade attempts to satisfactorily com- 
bat those problems in the future. 

THE BUSINESS SIDE 

As the national recession intensified 
throughout the nation, all levels of 
the coin machine industry found their 
economic foundation somewhat shak- 
en. Operators in many areas reported 
that collections suffered and chal- 
lenged the widely accepted notion 
that the coin machine business was a 
“depression” business, one that would 
not suffer from adverse economic times 
because the consumer would al- 
ways have the change to play the 
jukebox or amusement game. 

Complaints were also heard from 
distributors, who found it increasing- 
ly difficult to move their quota of 
machines. One tradester went so far 


as to predict that the independent 
distributing business would vanish 
from the industry during the next 10 
years. That prediction was vigorous- 
ly challenged by distributor Bert 
Betti of Boston Enterprises who 
maintained that the dealerships 
would never lose their vitality and 
importance to the industry. 

Betti contended that the distributor 
is of vital importance to the operator 
and that the small operator will con- 
tinue to serve as the backbone of the 
industry, providing the healthy com- 
petition that is necessary to keep the 
industry alive. Betti added that such 
cynicism by trade members could 
only serve to v/eaken the coin ma- 


chine business. 

Factories were also seriously 
affected by the national recession as 
they found themselves with attractive 
new machines to sell but a soft oper- 
ator market that began to cut back 
on new machine purchases. 

On a brighter financial side, SEGA 
Enterprises completed a new plant in 
Tokyo to help bolster the factory’s 
immense games production Bally 
Manufacturing Corp. reported in- 
creased earnings over 1969 and the 
firm’s shareholders approved a 3-2 
split of the company’s common 
stock, which is traded over the coun- 
ter.

ASSOCIATIONS 

During 1970 operators learned that 
they could no longer approach their 
problems with the approach of the ! 
proverbial ostrich who habitually : 
sticks his head in the sand when | 
problems arise. Through bitter ex- 
perience, operators learned that 
problems must be met with energy 
and foresight and consequently state 
associations were given renewed vi- 
gor and plans for new associations 
were outlined in several states, 
guidance to associations was the na- 

Providing encouragement and guid- 
ance to associations was the na- 
tional MOA, which came to grips 
with problems nationwide in scope 
and helped provide a sense of 
strength and unity to the trade that i 
was in turn conveyed to the state 
associations. 

During 1970 the MOA continued its I 
vigorous public relations effort to ac- | 
quaint the public and policy makers I 
with the operation of the coin ma- j 
chine industry. As part of president 
Lou Ptacek’s Phase II Public Rela- I 
tions Program, the “Jukebox Story” 
booklet was printed and distributed. 

Industry unity reached its apex 
during the mid-October MOA Expo 
Seven-0 where tradesters caught a I 
glimpse of the trade as a national j 
industry with common problems that , 
necessitated common action. Elected ! 
to carry the MOA forward during i 
1970-71 were president Les Mon- | 
tooth, secretary John Trucano and 
treasurer Harlan Wingrave. 

Some of the most significant ac- 
complishments achieved during the 
year were on the state level. Coin 
Operated Industries of Nebraska con- 
tinually delved into the serious prob- 
lems confronting the trade and made 
headway toward dealing effectively 
with the direct sales problem. 

The Kansas Amusement and Music 
Assn, was responsible for the enact- 
ment of landmark legislation for the 
trade as a breakin bill with teeth was 
passed into law. The Kansas success 
has served as an impetus to other 
state groups saddled with the prob- 
lem of vandalism. 

The Florida Amusement and Music 
Assn, perhans provided a look 
toward the future when it held a 
joint convention v/ith the Florida 
Automatic Mercliandis'ng Council, 
the vending group in the state. Be- 
hind president Wes Lawson the asso- 
ciation showed that cooperation be- 
tween the coin machine and vending 
industries can benefit both businesses 
and provide added strength to each. 

The Music Operators of Virginia 
held its customary eventful annual 
meeting and made progress in resolv- 
ing operators’ gripes vis-a-vis the 
record industrv. The group petitioned 
the major labels to limit records to 
three minutes length and discussed 
ways in which labels and ouerators 
could cooperate to merchandise sin- 
gles for jukebox play. 

In the face of industry difficulties, 
a few state associations were found- 
ed. Louisiana operators, after en- 
countering a close legislative call 
that would’ve crippled the state’s 
trade, met to organize a viable 
group. Colorado operators also met 
to set up a state group. The trade in 
Colorado and the nation as well lost 
a firm ally during the congressional 
primaries when Rep. Byron Rodgers 
was defeated. 

During 1970 associations gained 
maturity in the coin machine industry 
and gained heightened acceptance as 
a means to resolve the significant 
problems that continue to confront 
the industry. 

APPOINTMENTS 

When the national economy 
softens as it did during 1970, excep- 
tional business leaders are needed to 
keep industry dynamic and solvent. 
During the past year the coin ma- 
chine industry was fortunate to have 


the services of veteran leaders who 
accepted the economic situation as a 
challenge to be met and overcome 
rather than as an inevitable holo- 
caust. 

Lou Nicastro was re-elected pres- 
ident and chief executive officer of 
Commonwealth United Corp., See- 
burg’s parent company. Late in the 
year Sam Stern was appointed execu- 
tive vice-president of the Seeburg 
Corp. Edgar Blankenbeckler was 
named vice-president of the coin- 
operated division of the Seeburg 
Sales Corp. 

Ross Scheer was appointed director 
of marketing for Bally Mfg. Co. after 
serving in that capacity at Midway. 
Scheer proceeded to appoint Larry 
Berke as Midway’s sales manager. 

Wurlitzer’s Clayton Ballard was 
named to the position of manager of 
market research and sales training 
with headquarters in North Tona- 
wanda, N. Y. Replacing Ballard as 
the manager of Wurlitzer’s Los An- 
geles factory branch was Anthony 
“Bart” Bartholomew. 

Harry Martin was elected president 
of Rowe International and was also 
elected to the board of directors of 
Triangle Industries, Rowe’s parent 
company. 

Jack Mitnick retired from his post 
as sales manager at Allied Leisure 
Industries. Unable to stay away from 
the business which he had served so 
well, Mitnick returned to establish his 
own firm, JJM. Allied Leisure pres- 
ident Bob Braun subsequently ap- 
pointed Gene Lipkln as sales man- 
ager. 

Richard Stuke was appointed direc- 
tor of marketing at Fischer in a year 
when all billiard table manufacturers 
pursued vigorous promotional cam- 
paigns in marketing their coin- 
operated and home lines. 

Bob Jones left his sales position at 
Trimount to set up his own used 
equipment export business. Jones’ 
venture represented industry trends 
as international equipment markets 
were actively sought by U. S. trades- 
ters. 


DEATHS 

In any summary of an industry’s 
progress, the losses must be weighed 
alongside the gains. And during 1970 
the losses suffered by the coin ma- , 
chine industry were considerable — 
losses that can never be recouped. ; 

Harry Mabs, credited with the in- 
vention of the flipper game in 1947, 
died at the age of 81. Bob Lindelof, 
65, of General Music Co. in Skokie, 
111., was an active member of both 
MOA and ICMOA. New York City 
operators were greatly saddened by « 

' the passing of Abe Lipsky, 57, a I 
veteran of more than 20 years in the I 
jobbing and distributing business. I 
' Sol Gottlieb, oldest brother of 
Dave and Nate Gottlieb and longtime ij 
goodwill ambassador for the Gottlieb ,( 

[ Co., died in Florida at the age of 81. ; 

Henry Sikes, 52, had operated in I; ! 
New Mexico for nearly 20 years be- | 
fore his death that resulted from a I, 
heart attack. Joel Stern also suffered Ij 
a fatal heart attack. Only 35, Stern I, 
had been president of Windy City I, 
Music Co. in Chicago. I 

John Ryan, sales director and ex- l| 
ecutive vice-president of Valley Mfg. 1^ 
& Sales, died during the summer at 
the age of 64. Ryan was instrumental I' 
in building up the Valley factory, 1^ 
which helped put the coin-operated 
pool table on the map. Max Hurvich, I' 
president and founder of the Bir- i, 
mingham Vending Co., died late in i : 
the year at the age of 69. L j 

The passing of these men and oth- jj 
ers in the trade took from the coin fp 
machine industry many lasting per- 
sonal friendships and a great foun- Ip 
tain of knowledge and competence. |u 
Fortunately for the industry these fp 
men passed on these qualities to their 
successors, who are as a result infi- 
nitely better equipped to confront Ip 
changing times in a dynamic industry 
that is very much alive. Dh

Bally ‘Target Zero’ Helps Players Score; 
New Novelly Machine Shipping Now. 


CHICAGO — “Want to know how to 
guarantee big money repeat play on 
a target game?” asked Paul Cala- 
mari, sales manager of Bally Manu- 
facturing, announcing delivery of 
“Target Zero,” new “missile mission” 
target game. And he promptly sup- 
plied the answer: “By giving players 
I a chance to score hits. Not too easy, 
i of course, but not so tough they get 
:i^ discouraged and walk away. 

“A real scoring break to the play- 
er,” Calamari continued, “is the big 
money-making break ‘Target Zero’ 
gives the operator anxious to earn 
! the biggest buck possible for the lon- 
gest life on location. First, brilliant 
J stand-out targets that are easy to 
spot and follow. Second, the new 
I Bally-exclusive ‘radar’ target tracker 
[ that helps the player zero in on each 
up-coming target instead of shooting 
iji blindly in the general direction of a 
S: target. 

“And players who step up to ‘Tar- 
get Zero’ . . . men, women, kids . . . 
step into a jet bomber They feel the 
sensation of speeding motion across 
3-dimensional terrain, lit by black 
light. They guide blazing missiles to 
strategic targets, actually changing 
the course of missiles in flight. And 
they score hits. 

“No wonder they keep on playing 
hour after hour, day after day, and 
will keep on playing month after 
month. No wonder ‘Target Zero’ eas-

ily outeams any target game ever 
built. ‘Target Zero’ puts the player in 
the middle of the action, puts the 
operator in the money,” he declared. 


Al Rodstein Retires from Macke; 
Will Devote His Time to Banner 



Al Rodstein 


PHILADELPHIA — Al Rodstein, an 
industry pioneer, now in the thirty- 
sixth year of his career in vending, 
games and music, has announced his 
retirement from the Macke Company, 
after a decade of service there as one 
of its top corporate officers and 
board members. 


\ 




'j, 

i)' 

!l 


After a sabbatical of a few 
months, beginning December 18, the 
thirty-second anniversary of his mar- 
riage to Miriam, he will assume an 
active part in the management of 
Banner Specialty Company, the fifty- 
four year old equipment distributing 
firm which he heads. 

Rodstein said that he is pleased to 
be in a position to contribute what- 
ever possible to a Banner business 
already being most capably operated 
in Pittsburgh by Herb Rosenthal and 
staff, and in Philadelphia by Jim 
Ginsberg, Marc Rodstein and staff. 

Banner is the exclusive distributor 
for Automatic Products Company in 
the marketing area covered by the 
Philadelphia office. 

In the territory covered by the 
Pittsburgh office. Banner is distribu- 
tor for Rowe International and the 
D. Gottlieb Company. 

In the entire territory covered by 
both the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh 
offices, Banner Specialty Company 
distributes exclusively for Williams 
United Shuffle Alleys, the Sega line. 
Allied Leisure Products, Valley Pool 
Tables, and Universal Vendors. 


“Banner’s objective is to continue 
its excellent, sudden service to opera- 
tors of vending, games, and music 
equipment, and to add, on an exclu- 
sive basis, additional coin-operated 
equipment lines which will meet the 
Company’s long established standard 
of ‘Endorsing Only The Best’ ”, Rod- 
stein said. 

Xerox Bows CoinOp 
Speed Photo Copier; 
A Copy Per-Second 

ROCHESTER, N. Y. — A coin- 
operated version of the copy-per- 
second Xerox 3600-1 duplicator was 
announced here today by the Busi- 
ness Products Group of Xerox Cor- 
poration. 

Robert F. Reiser, manager of copi- 
er, duplicator and supplies market- 
ing, said the new 3600-1 is designed 
to meet the need for a “faster copy- 
ing device in the coin-operated mar- 
ket.” The machine delivers a copy in 
ten seconds after the coin is inserted 
and the “print” button is pushed. “Its 
speed helps eliminate long lines of 
people waiting for copies,” he ad- 
vised. 

Reiser pointed out that the coin 
mechanism can be set in five cent 
increments from a nickle to 25 cents 
per copy and makes change automat- 
ically. To make a copy, the customer 
inserts a coin, places his original 
document on the glass platen and 
pushes a button. 

Operation is completely automatic 
and regular maintenance is per- 
formed by Xerox service personnel at 
no additional charge. 

Three pricing plans are available. 
They range from a minimum rental 
of $515 a month for customers who 
anticipate high volume to $400 a 
month for non-profit institutions on 
a direct yearly contract basis. 

“The 3600-1 coin-operated duplica- 
tor,” Reiser said, “offers speed, con- 
venience and high copy quality that 
will make it useful in a wide variety 
of business and educational applica- 
tions.” 

The concept of a coin-operated 
photo-copying machine, while not new 
to the scene, has yet to be properly 
explored by the coin machine indus- 
try.

EASTERIV FLASHES 

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS — May we take this opportunity to wish all our 
friends in the industry a joyous holiday season and a prosperous New Year to 
boot. Prosperity, better known as financial security, is of course everyone's quest, 
but it might be a good idea to pause and reflect on the prosperity most enjoy 
right now. You know, 1970 was so rife with complaining about bum collections 
and machine sales that you'd think the trade was on its butt. But, hey, this 
business has given most out there a good living, in some cases, a fabulous living, 
and it might be a good idea to lay off the moaning a bit and count the blessings. ! 
Think about your good stops more and less about the stiffs. Look at the bank 
balance instead of the list of payables. Think about the friends you have in the | 
industry and less about the claim jumpers. There’s a lot of good around and a ! 
great deal to be thankful for. So eat, drink, be merry this holiday season and 
above all, be kind when you talk about the trade that feeds you. \ 

AROUND TOWN — Morris Nahum at the Belam Co. info’s firm’s considering j 
expanding their marketing interests in Europe by taking on some non-coin prod- | 
ucts for distribution in the Common Market countries out of their Antwerp ware- I 
house. . . . Chatted with Sugerman’s Barry Feinblatt when in town recently with 
some foreign customers to show them the arcades in the Broadway area. The 
overseas ops hailed from Central and South America. . . . Al Rubin, president 
of Musicanza Records, is proving definitively that a 45 single record can in fact I 
be broken nationwide via the jukes. With the cooperation of most of the country’s 
one stops, Rubin’s ‘Red, Red Roses’ (by Johnny Desmond) is reaching dozens | 
of radio playlists after location customers phoned in their requests after hearing | 
it on the machines. From Dick’s Records in Boston, to Northern in Cleveland, I 
Lieberman in Omaha to Eric Maitland in Los Angeles, the disks are shipping to ^ 

ops and scoring on location. Obviously, it’s a great tune but it’s interesting that i 

the music operator can create his own play action. | 

DOWN SOUTH — Wes Lawson, president of the Florida Assn., tells us commit- ij 
tees of ops were formed at recent board meeting in Tampa to deal with pressing | 
state problems which include direct sales and vocational training for mechanics. I 
Heading both committees is Sol Tabb. . . . Dave Gottlieb and his wife arrived in | 

the Sunshine State last week with the happy news that their daughter Roberta | 

(Mrs. Hal Kaye) gave birth to a 7 lb. 4 oz. baby girl, bringing it to seven grand- i? 

children for the founder of the Gottlieb factory. Little girl’s named Dana Gabriel. | 

MILWAUKEE MENTIONS | 

Happy Holidays! . . . The snowmobiling season is in full swing hereabouts I 
following the recent (and we might add very heavy) snowfall. On the other hand, I 
however, the storm did create some transportation problems but we understand, \ 
as of this writing, roads are pretty much cleared and back to normal . . . This [ 
past week was a mighty busy one at Empire Dist. in Green Bay. The first ship- I 
ment of Rock-Ola "445” phonographs arrived and were being quickly bought up, | 
according to Bob Rondeau. A new Gottlieb add-a-ball is being readied for release j 
right after the first of the year — which is something to look forward to . . . Bob j 
and Bev Rondeau are planning a weekend trip, sometime after Christmas, to j 
Woodruff, Wisconsin for a visit with Bill and Joanie Derleth of Lakeland Music ... ' J 

The Jack Waterman’s of Waterman. Coin welcomed a new baby girl last week. j 

Our congratulations! . . . Paul Jacobs of Wurlitzer Dist. Corp. says the new j 

"Zodiac” is doing extremely well for him. As a matter of fact, safes are currently 
running “two to one over last year”! Great! Paul further informs us that Syd 3 
Vertlieb, national sales manager for Moyer-Diebel is due in very shortly to spend | 
a week with him and salesman Dick Gifford. WDC recently took on the Moyer- | 
Diebel line of dry coffee machines, can drink venders and snack machines ... I 
Got the word from Gordon Pelzek of Record City that the following singles are |i 
scoring with local operators: “Merry Christmas Darling” by The Carpenters (A&M), | 

“America” by The Love Society (Mercury), “Stoney End” by Barbra Streisand | 
(Columbia), “Your Song” by Elton John (Uni), “Day Drinking” by Dave Dudley I 
and Tom T. Hall (Mercury) and “Bed Of Roses” by the Statler Bros. (Mercury). |

actually higher than had been expected. The first showing of the new models | 
was held Nov. 3-4 in Houston and Nov. 5-6 in San Antonio. Both showings : ^

CHICAGO CHATTER 

We’d like to extend holiday greetings to ail of our friends in the coin machine 
industry . . . The local papers have been spreading the good news that Mc- 
Cormack Place will very definitely re-open on Jan. 3. The new building, replacing 
the burned out structure, contains 585,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space to house 
approximately 3,000 booths and is equipped throughout with a sophisticated, 
ultra modern fire detection system. It is said that the center is already booked 
for fifty weeks of next year and one of the first conventions to open will be the 
giant Housewares Show, which was in session when the 1967 fire struck. Al- 
though the exhibit facilities will be available Jan. 3, the center’s 4,000 seat 
Arie Crown Theatre, an underground garage for 2,100 cars, will not be finished 
until early Spring . . . Atlas Music Co. has scheduled its first service school on 
the Rowe MM 5 Presidential line of phonographs for the second week of 
January. A Rowe factory engineer will come in to conduct the session, which 
will be held in the distrib’s local showroom. Joe Kline says invitations will be 
in the mail shortly . . . Interstate United Corp. announced the appointment 
of Edward A. Wiler to the post of v.p. of marketing of the firm’s business and 
industry group. Wiler, a veteran of 18 years in the industry, was formerly man- 
ager of marketing services for Servomation Corp. of N.Y. . . . Rockola Manu- 
facturing Corp’s field engineer. Bill Findlay, has been on the move constantly 
since the factory’s release of the 444, and most recently the 445 model phono- 
graphs. Bill’s been conducting a steady series of service schools across the 
country and will continue to do so after the holidays. Executive v.p. Ed Doris 
just got back from his latest trip . . . Williams Electronics Inc. is in full produc- 
tion on the "Cimarron” six player shuffle alley which debuted a couple of weeks 
back. A mighty strong item, according to Bill DeSelm. Around the end of this 
month Williams will begin shipping samples of another new item — a four player 
called "Dipsy Doodle.” Watch for it ... In its campaign to stamp out the extra 
long playing (i.e. five to six minutes) 45 rpm single, the Music Operators of 
Virginia issued a resolution which reads in part, "... the Music Operators of 
Virginia . . . unanimously request all record manufacturers in the U.S. furnishing 
records to jukebox operators to cease producing such records playing longer than 
three minutes.” Copies of the resolution were mailed to all major record com- 
panies in the country . . . Mort Secore informs us sample shipments of “Cowboy’’ 
are currently in progress. The four player flipper is the latest entry from the 
Chicago Dynamic Industries factory . . . Lots of new equipment from the Chicago 
factories. Here’s another one — Bally Manufacturing Corp.’s “Target Zero,” re- 
leased last week and in production as of now . . . Also D. Gottlieb and Co.’s 
latest two player flipper “Snow Derby” . . . Richard Prutting of Little LP's Un- 1 
limited in Northfield, III., has added some very strong new material to his current 
catalogue of operator releases — the Carpenters’ “Close To You,” “Greatest Hits,” 
by Wes Montgomery, and “Make It Easy On Yourself” by Burt Bacharach. Rich 
maintains a very diversified stock of product ranging from jazz to country western, 
and manages to keep one-stops and ops advised of what’s available via frequent 
mailings. 


CALIFORNIA CLIPPINGS I 

This year, for the first time in many, we have our dates right and we want to ! 
wish everyone on Phonorow a very Merry Christmas. Speaking of Christmas, j 
Hank Tronick of C. A. Robinson says that their Christmas should be just won- 
derful since they just received word from Bally that “Target Zero” will soon be 
available and as if that wasn’t enough, along came word of Midway’s soon to be i 
delivered “Jet Rider”. So they are all waiting for Santa to drop those goodies off | 
in time for a very happy holiday. H. T. also informs us that they have been run- i 
ning a tremendous equipment and parts sale until the end of the year. This being 
coupled with an open house — good food, good drink and very good fellowship, | 
for the entire week preceeding the holidays. Festivities, of course, will be held in 
the famous C.A.R. Playroom, which we are told, has now achieved the reputation [ 
of being the biggest "little” room on Pico Blvd. Hank reports to us that they are 
practically “bustin’ ” out of their britches, as space becomes a vital problem in 
the successful operation of their business. Aside from the office, plus an addi- i 
tional warehouse, they are now shopping for more room to handle the increased 
inventories. Al and Leah Bettelman are off to Murietta Hot Springs for a few days 
of rest and relaxation to counter the arduous pressures of recent business ac- 
tivity. The revitalization produced by the mineral baths literally made a tiger out 
of Al as evidenced by renewed activity throughout the premises. Mike Hall, former 
Service Manager, has been promoted to Sales and is doing a creditable job in 
assisting Hank T. in taking care of customers from near and far.

RECORD NOW PLAYING INDICATOR 



SWING-OUT COMPONENTS 



It’s a smaller version of the 444, with all the features and quality of its 

big brother. But it fits in places where the 444 can't. That's what it’s made for. 

It’s got 100 selections and a smaller cabinet, but those are the only differences. It works 
with all the optional accessories and can be equipped for “2 plays-2 bits." 

If you want a big Rock-Ola in a place where there’s 

no room to put one, put in this little Rock-Ola to do the same big job. 

It’s a little biggie.
